EIRADO, André do  and  PASSOS, Eduardo. The relationship between autonomy and virtuality. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2004, vol.9, n.1, pp.77-85. ISSN 1413-7372.

This paper presents connections established between Maturana and Varela’s biology of knowledge and Bergson’s philosophy. The concepts of autonomy and autopoiesis from Maturana and Varela’s cognitive theory are articulated with Bergson’s concept of virtuality.  Such articulation is made possible due to the affinities of both conceptual fields. The concept of subjectivity is articulated with both the circular and paradoxical dynamic of autopoiesis and the concept of virtuality.

Keywords : cognition; autonomy; autopoiesis; virtuality.
