Objectivity I 22
Objectivity/knowledge/Maturana: knowledge, first personally, privately - that allegedly transferable is only created by the listener (observer).
I 156
Definition objectivity in parentheses/Maturana: should mean: everything that happens is, brought forth by the observer in his life praxis as the primary basis of experience and any explanation for this is secondary.
I 157
There are then as many areas of existence as there are kinds of distinction - leads to the multiverse - all verses are equally legitimate, although they are not all as pleasant - objectivity without parentheses/MaturanaVs: demands unit and ultimately leads to reductionism - because it must define reality as a single, last valid area (independent existence).
I 196
E.g. explanation by action, not by independent reality.
I 223
Objectivity without parentheses/Maturana: does not distinguish between illusion and perception, because it asuumes an independent reality - that contradicts the structural determinism of living systems - cannot explain scientific explanations because observers ability is presupposed.
