Abstract: The commentators pose questions and note issues arising within multiple contexts invoked in the target article. In this response, I endeavor to address as many of the points and queries as I can within the prescribed space afforded me. The responses are organized with regard to the three main topical areas within the target article: engaging with and learning Maturana’s BoC; employing BoC orientations and tenets to practical effect; and the prospects for continuing to refine and extend Maturana’s work.
