Heinz Von Forester characterizes the objects 'known' by an autopoietic system as eigen-solutions,that is, as discrete, separable, stable and composable states of the interaction of the system with itsenvironment. Previous articles have presented the FBST, Full Bayesian Significance Test, as amathematical formalism specifically designed to access the support for sharp statistical hypotheses,and have shown that these hypotheses correspond, from a constructivist perspective, to systemiceigen-solutions in the practice of science. In this article several issues related to the role played bylanguage in the emergence of eigen-solutions are analyzed. The last sections also explore possibleconnections with the semiotic theory of Charles Sanders Peirce.
