Maturana H. R. (1974) Cognitive strategies. In: Foerster H. von (ed.) Cybernetics of cybernetics. Biological Computer Lab (BCL) Report 73–38. Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Illinois, Urbana IL: 457–469. Fulltext at
My purpose in this article is to discuss cognition in relation to man and the unity of man, in an attempt to showthat any notionthat we may have about the unity of man is bound to our views about knowledge and reality. Since everything that I say is said as an observer addressing other observers, I shall consider the statement that “any human action implies knowledge” as a sufficient experiential characterization of cognition, and let any additional connotation arise in the course of the article.
