The concept of framing algorithm surges from the successive applications of internal rules (for instance of positional values) to incoming inputs. Progressive betterment of their assimilation processes tend to stabilize into more closely defined channels.
M. MARUYAMA proposed to apply this model to embryology: "Since information is generated by the interaction between various parts of the embryo, it is not necessary for each part of the embryo to contain information regarding the body part it is destined to become. It partly receives the information from other parts … and from its relationships to them" (1963, p.238).
This looks like a case of progressive organizational closure.
- 1) General information
- 2) Methodology or model
- 3) Epistemology, ontology and semantics
- 4) Human sciences
- 5) Discipline oriented
