“Knowing how we know” is the subject of this book. Its authors present a new view of cognition that has important social and ethical implications, for, they assert, the only world we humans can have is the one we create together through the actions of our coexistence. Written for a general audience as well as for students, scholars, and scientists and abundantly illustrated with examples from biology, linguistics, and social and“tultural phenomena, this revised edition includes a new afterword by Dr. Varela, in which he discusses the effect the book has had in the y ears since its first publication.
