Biology of Cognition & Autopoiesis Maturana views language as the archetypal illustration of a human consensual domain. Linguistic interaction is a venue for action, coupling the cognitive domains of two or more actors. This is reflected in Maturana's preference for discussing "languaging" (an activity) as opposed to "language" (a symbolic schema).

Complexity, Systems & Networks

Actor Network Theory ANT concern with how actors and organisations mobile, juxtapose and hold together the bits and pieces out of which they are composed. Cultures work as networks, with objects and people as acting and being acted on to create culture.

Collective Intelligence

Complex Network Theory Social networks are social structures composed of groups of people, which are connected by one or more types of relationships such as friendship, kinship, common interests or shared knowledge. Complex Neyworks ‌
