In this paper, the author illustrates an imaginary conversation between a young psychologist specializing in family psychotherapy and the french philosopher Edgar Morin. The dialogue is based upon the first volume of the Morin’s works called "the Method". The conversation goes on between the curious questions of the student and the deep answers of the thinker that summarize the basic concepts of the book. Morin confesses the real reasons that are below his work, talking about epistemology as a real "maître à penser", helping the student to orienting himself toward a new vision of the reality’s complexity.

Keywords: Complexity, systemic epistemology, order, disorder, organization, interaction.
