Inverse transfer and epistemo‐praxiology

Inverse transfer and epistemo‐praxiology Purpose – To present the concept of inverse transfer of the internal structures of a dynamical system to the perception it has of its environment and itself. Design/methodology/approach – We use the formalism of mathematical operators acting on functional spaces. Findings – The concept of inverse transfer clarifies many aspects of the subjectivity of perception (epistemological or praxiological). The decisions taken according to this perception modifies both the environment and the system, generating a feedback loop and showing that the co‐evolution of the system and its environment is a fixed point of an adequate operator. Originality/value – Our research shows the importance of a synthesis of observation and decision in the understanding of perception, giving rise to an epistemo‐praxiology. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Kybernetes Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – To present the concept of inverse transfer of the internal structures of a dynamical system to the perception it has of its environment and itself. Design/methodology/approach – We use the formalism of mathematical operators acting on functional spaces. Findings – The concept of inverse transfer clarifies many aspects of the subjectivity of perception (epistemological or praxiological). The decisions taken according to this perception modifies both the environment and the system, generating a feedback loop and showing that the co‐evolution of the system and its environment is a fixed point of an adequate operator. Originality/value – Our research shows the importance of a synthesis of observation and decision in the understanding of perception, giving rise to an epistemo‐praxiology.
