Kants problem der realisierungsbedingungen organischer zweckmäßigkeit und seine systemtheoretische auflösung

Summary Kant's characterization of organic inities by the principle of aninner, and that is to say, immanently natural andmind-independent purposiveness has continued to retain validity. Difficulties however exist for Kant's theory from theconditions of their realization. The following inquiry attempts to describe to what extent this difficulty has currently found asystem-theoretical solution: The realizability of cyclical causal relationships proves itself here to be a fundamental prerequisite. The possibility forself-regulating systems thus consequently ensues. Decisive for the cybernetical reconstructability ofinner purposiveness is however the evidence that the principle of self-regulation — which has apparently been misunderstood in recent discussions (Jonas, Spaemann, Löw) includes not only the possibility of active goalpursuance (robots) but, additionally, the possibility forexistential self-reference (organism). This has fostered greater insight into hownormative instances can be establish upon a purely physical basis. The status ofinformation will then accordingly be questioned. This inquiry closes with a look to possibleontological consequences
