A greatest Chilean

Chile has a lot of important people that is recognized in countries around the world instead in Chile.
One time, I studied a great Chilean author during the career. I was studying the way that we approach the reality and how we know it. I recently know about Humberto Maturana. He is a Chilean biologist and philosopher. Maturana studied in this university (of Chile), he won the national science natural in 1994 and creates a theory of biology cognition. This discipline explains that the organisms have close systems with a predetermined structure (biology). Maturana is known for developing a theory of autopoiesis about the nature of reflexive feedback control in living systems. I find attractive the development of Maturana given that he makes a combination between culture and biology of existence of humans beings. In the middle of a culture dominated by the rationalization, he recovers the emotions that determinate the culture: the love. The living of humans beings are created in the relationships based of love. This dynamic holds the acceptation of others that results of life together and the constitution of language, an essential element of our lives.
One of the books I read is called “The tree of knowledge”. I love that because is the only book I read (for university) that have draws (painted by him) of animals, many schemes and charts that makes the book more interactive.

First Day at University

I’m going to talk about the first day in this University. Why? Before studying at University of Chile, I was in a private university that I don’t like so much. When I graduated from high school I wanted to study psychologist at UBA (University of Buenos Aires), but for different reasons I couldn’t go. So I didn’t prepare PSU. I studied two years and then I changed at University of Chile by special admission. I have to say that it the most change I ever do, even if took a lot of effort. This is the reason why now I’m having subjects of second and thirst year of psychologist. Consequently, in my first day, I was with the students of the first year. I didn’t make social relations immediately because I’m just adapting at a new establishment that are very different. At the first moment I feel strange and I remembered I had a distance attitude. Little by little I started to made friends and just felt more relax. However, I didn’t feel the same in class with the second years of students. In different situations I was uncomfortable, alone and lost because most of them were friends before I met them. Now, the situations change at all. I have a great sensation connected with all things of this University and people here. I think maybe the time ability to me to overcome troubles with the organized of the career also to build relationships that make me feel a complete satisfaction at the university life.
