CRUZ BAUTISTA, Patricia et al. Epistemic framework for studying agroecosystems. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.1, pp.159-170. ISSN 2007-0934.

The aim of the present document is to frame the approach of agroecosystems, with autopoietic perspectives, in some current that corresponds to it considering that many of the works realized under the approach of agroecosystems lack of a frame of this type and with theoretical absence. Based on this assertion, it is desirable that researchers studying complex phenomena possess epistemological notions to locate their academic position and, based on it, the theoretical bases of such works. This would undoubtedly help to identify the differences and similarities of the various epistemic postures, making the work planned to be coherent. The agroecosystems approach is located within the galilean line; which, through history, has had as objectives: the control and domination of nature, in an attempt to maximize profits. The knowledge of the different epistemic postures can lead us to reflect on the benefits, or otherwise, of the galilean current, but also of the aristotelian current, with the option of complementing both currents, in the quest to be a better human being and achieve a best society.

Palabras llave : autopoiesis; epistemology.
