FELIX BUROTTO, Juan  and  GANGA-CONTRERAS, Francisco. La méthode by Morin: refutations and openings. Convergencia [online]. 2012, vol.19, n.60, pp.79-109. ISSN 2448-5799.

The work is stated on three levels about La méthode by Edgar Morin. At a first moment, a reading of the text is developed, making a description of all its volumes. At a second level, the essay discuses the critiques from a scientific viewpoint, participating in some of them; recognizing the lacks of the text -shortage in the available scientific intertext and distortions in the contents, metaphoric abuse and model precariousness. It analyzes some of them to finally explore the possibilities in two additional readings, to learn the choice of a sort of elements that disaggregated from La méthode, have validity on themselves, and in addition to study the possibilities to understand Morinian thought like depositary of significant knowledge, as the perspective by J. A. Miller. Later La méthode after these new readings, could exhibit openings and new developments at a level of epistemological relevance.

Keywords : complexity; epistemology; recursiveness; hologram; knowledge triangle.
