Open peer commentary on the article “In Maturana’s Wake: The Biology of Cognition’s Legacy and its Prospects” by Randall Whitaker. Abstract: Following Whitaker’s target article I have sought to understand, apply and extend Humberto Maturana’s biology of cognition (BoC. My approach has been to use a few key concepts pertinent to interpersonal ethical issues and so I avoided being enmeshed in BoC. This commentary is presented as an extension or application of BoC going beyond the details considered in the target article.
