Abstract


Our analytical model for agroecosystems having sugarcane production (SAEs) in the central Gulf of Mexico is based on several philosophical currents for a realistic analysis of a specific time and location, according to the context and focus of the currents. Given the premise that the search for complex knowledge is a product of continuous learning, the model is partially founded on the theory of complexity. Traditionally, when adequate procedures are used to undertake any problem of investigation in its totality, it is called a dialectical method; in contrast, another starting point is systemic thought. With the use of these theoretical-philosophical tools, it is possible to construct a model that promotes communication among actors, between sugarcane producers and institutions, so they may jointly design technological products and services according to the level of production and the needs of each grower.
