MORIN, Edgar. La emergencia del sentido a partir del no-sentido. Convergencia [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.44, pp.157-171. ISSN 2448-5799.

In this text we reflect on the problem of sense, which necessarily implies a system, an organization, but also it needs to be given ends. As it is the being giving sense is human, then, the sub) ectivity is the one forming the sense. Knowing, as a human act, is the moment of granting sense to everything, but there is no sense by itself, there is sense if there is a relation between us or between events. This is the reason why it is said that sense emerges from no-sense. Therefore, the justification or foundation in nowhere else but within us, this allows us to criticize every promise ethics and the ethics of foundation (where fundaments are divine, cosmic, biologic), and to face an ethics without Salvation and without a promise.

Keywords : no-sense; sense of the world; complexity.
