Abstract: In response to the many interesting points raised by the commentators, I discuss Maturana’s “circularities of speech,” the importance of metabolism, the absence of cognition in chemical autopoiesis, the semantics of “mind” and “consciousness,” and the central issue of whether the Santiago theory overcomes the Cartesian dualism of mind and body.
