2) The second is critical interpretation:"for the unveiling and decoding of imposed codes and of the degrees of liberty still available"

3) The third is the refusal of a propositive attitude, in favour of supplying indications instead (theory of unbalancing Systems (1969/74) capable of urging awareness of a problem like the collective management of the space we live in." "
