Description/Abstract

Kravchenko (2007) suggests replacing Turing’s suggested method for explaining cognizers’ cognitive capacity through autonomous robotic modelling by ‘autopoeisis, Maturana’s extremely vague metaphor for the relations and interactions among organisms and their environments. I suggest that this would be an exercise in hermeneutics rather than causal explanation.
