I'm still a student, writing on my final paper: Culture in the Learning
Organization. This is a topic that has interested me for a long time, and
I have written several papers on culture and learning organizations. A

This institution I also found was very a learning organization in many
ways. I'm therefore using it as a case in my final paper.

In regard to Richard Karash, Marturana Seminar #1 - epistimology LO12887,
March 14, 1997, I can inform you that I'm also going to write about Niklas
Luhmann's (German filosopher og sociologist) theory about autopoietic

three kinds of autopoietic systems: Biological, psychological and social.
Luhmann's writings gives me a theoretical reason for why learning and
culture are important issues in dealing with organizations and their

I've never been on a mailinglist before, so I might be doing things wrong,

If anyone has interesting web-adresses on learning, culture and/or
autopoietic systems I would be very happy to know them.

Yours respectfully, Lisa.
