[Autom. eng. transl.] In the Preface of the second volume of Structures of the World (il Mulino, Bologna 2013) Michele Lenoci clearly and frankly identified the important cultural challenge that the group of systemic research had launched and with respect to which he now had a great responsibility: if on the one hand in fact, the insistence on flexibility, dynamism, complexity and openness of the systems made it possible to overcome the aporias of a merely analytical approach, on the other, made a position even more urgent: the systemics proposes an epistemology and a theory of knowledge or even an ontology; in short, does it only tell us how we know, under what conditions and in what ways does our knowledge take place, or does it also inform us about the way in which the world is constituted in its superficial or profound structure? The third volume of World Structures explicitly assumes the ontological commitment required by the previous volume, starting from an adequate rethinking of causality, both at the formal and at the final level.
