The paper outlines and introduces to a more extensive and analytic work. “Complexity paradigm” (Morin, Ceruti, etc.) is criticized for based un a one-sided interpretation of Piaget’s work, wrongly associated with hermeneutics. The attempt to link Thom’s catastrophe theory, Prigogine’s theory of non-equilibrium thermodynamic systems, Haken Synergetics, the “New Biology” (Lewontin, Gould, Eldredge, Goodwin, Webster), the batesonian Ecology of Mind, Atlan’s biophysics, Von Foerster cybernetics, Maturana’s and Varela’s “autopoiesis,” etc. is showed as going to fail. Von Glasersfeld’s “radical constructivism,” and autopoiesis are, in respect to genetic epistemology, partial theories which could be successful in replacing it, but not in fulfilling it.
