In confronting F. de Saussure's 'Cours de linguistique générale' with S. Kauffman's 'Investigations', it is possible to observe a hint of convergence of understanding the system, its development. Nevertheless, in grasping the language metaphor of life, what I primarily find is a clear correspondence between neo-Darwinism and linguistic structuralism (in relation to evolution, or more precisely to language development/speech behaviour). What is chaotic for neo-Darwinism and linguistic structuralism (again in relation to the development of life/speech) can be self-organized for biological structuralism. This text demonstrates the relations between the methodologies of the appropriate sciences and the types of order that can be described/discovered by them.
