holism and post struct.

Wed, 28 Jun 1995 06:59:35 -0400

Hi there,

Does anybody know of references of a post-structuralist critique of
holism? I am particularly interested in anything which refers to the
holon concept/ alternatively, which refers to autopoiesis and
Maturana's 'structure determinism'.

Does anybody have any comments about the relevance of holism and
chaos theory to concepts of culture?

Would be appreciated.
