Open peer commentary on the article “Foresight Rather than Hindsight? Future State Maximization As a Computational Interpretation of Heinz von Foerster’s Ethical Imperative” by Hannes Hornischer, Simon Plakolb, Georg Jäger & Manfred Füllsack. Abstract: I review von Foerster’s (bio)computational approach to cognition in relation to foresight and hindsight, and to his Ethical Imperative. For him, ethics must remain implicit and becomes manifest through metaphysics and dialogics. Only under this condition can the relevance of Future State Maximization for the system that is modelled be established. Relation between FSX and Ethical Imperative
