In the self-organizing complex dynamical systems that form holarchies, the decisions (or reactions) of their components (constituents) sometimes are crucial because they may involve the proper existence of the system. Additionally, in the real world, these components are immersed in highly complex environments of which have an incomplete or inadequate knowledge and they can’t be completely consistent about their preferences and their beliefs, can show a bounded rationality, etc. All these circumstances affect the way in which the components not only behave, but also emerge and disappear. In this work the necessary and sufficient conditions previously given for the holons formation are reviewed in the light of these facts using for the uncertainty/randomness handling the fuzzy probabilities theory (thus modeling the decision making process through the fuzzy decision making under risk theory), and, from these conditions, the concept of holon cohesion is derived and introduced as a generalization of the reliability of a system.
