Harnad S. (2007) Maturana’s autopoietic hermeneutics versus Turing’s causal methodology for explaining cognition. Pragmatics & Cognition 15(3): 599–603. Fulltext at
Kravchenko (2007) suggests replacing Turing’s suggestion for explaining cognizers’ cognitive capacity through autonomous robotic modelling by ‘autopoiesis’, Maturana’s extremely vague metaphor for the relations and interactions among organisms, environments, and various subordinate and superordinate systems (‘autopoietic systems’) therein. I suggest that this would be an exercise in hermeneutics rather than causal explanation.
