The brain in light of Edgar Morin’s paradigm of complexity

Autor: Andrade Salazar José Alonso


This paper aims at pointing out the contributions of Edgar Morin´s complexity theory for the study of the brain. According to Morin, the brain is a unity of multiplicities, “Unitas multiplex,” given that it works through dialog and sociocultural, genetic brain domains converge within it, from which multiple ecosystem religares emerge, which turn it into the core of the phenomenal association, shaping, and reproduction. The brain is polycentric, poly-phenomenal and multidimensional; order–chaos–organization come together as a result of a recursive, recurrent, organizational operation.
