Prediction/forecast/Maturana: can only be successful in an unchanged environment - there are no individual events predicted but classes of events.
Prediction/forecast/hypothesis/observation/Maturana: there is nothing like this in science - there are only statements and explanations - these explain the life praxis of the scientist, not an independent reality.
Forecast/prediction/Maturana: only possible if a system is fully described - Calculation of structural changes - Requires ability not to confuse the phenomenon areas - determinism does not influence the possibility of prediction - uncertainty/ambiguity: is there because cognition is the product of ontology of observing and not of an objective reality._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
