The Relation between Future State Maximization and von Foerster's Ethical Imperative
Journal article, 2020

I review von Foerster's (bio) computational approach to cognition in relation to foresight and hindsight, and to his Ethical Imperative. For him, ethics must remain implicit and becomes manifest through metaphysics and dialogics. Only under this condition can the relevance of Future State Maximization for the system that is modelled be established.
