1. HOLISTIC AND PLANETIC SCIENCE AND SYNTHESIS
In the times in which we live, the need for the creation of New Sciences, with different characteristics, becomes increasingly apparent.

The alienation of knowledge from the life of the scientist, the expropriation of its use in society because of the alienation of people and economic and political vested interests, as well as the deficit in knowledge on matters concerning the modern world impose upon us the formulation of the proposal for the development of those New Sciences which will bridge the gap between the alienation of technologies and the psychic depth of life and the human Being.

Knowledge and world need

These sciences need to operate as a starting-point for synthesis and the enhancement of those already existing, but also as a boundless horizon. This is not a matter only of synthesis and adequacy of knowledge; the chief desideratum is the contact of knowledge with world need. These new sciences should not be regarded as information sciences, but as sciences of the development of evolutionary and humanist attributes.

In these sciences, emphasis must principally be given to developments of the future. They are sciences of profound Existential Liberation and incompatible with submission to the catastrophic utilitarian mania of today's organisation of our apprehension. They are sciences of the will which are not generated by the collecting of information, but by the focused aim of liberation to which they are dedicated and which will also determine their cognitive profile.

We give below only those areas which must undergo renewal:

1. Law

2. Education

3. History

4. Psychology

5. Structures of Apprehension

6. Epistemology and Truth Theory

7. Thematic of Science

8. Social and Political Evolution and Integration.

Three new sciences

There are certain central theories which must at some point be formulated as the Synthesis and Evolution of today's objects of knowledge, before they emerge in their precise form. This new theory will have as its subject Evolutionary Synthesis Transcendentalism.

A. The science of the transcending of the mechanistic approach to apprehension of beings. This science can be summed up as a Theory of Esoterism, as a theory of esotericism, as a theory of the demechanicisation of the apprehension of beings. Esoterism must deal with the 'wilderness' of thought, the mechanocracy and totalitarianism of the authority of scientific thought.

B. Planetic science

Apart from esotericism, major developments of the New Thought are Planetic Science, a science which is exploratory, executive, which moves in the direction of the integration and evolution of the planet, and, at the same time, of the liberation of the threats of which it is composed. Briefly put, we have in mind a Holistic Enthalpy. This science, according to our introductory positioning, has vast horizons, many of which are completely new. It is a science which deals with the Liberation of the Totality from the part and the revelation of the Whole in the part.

C. Holistic Anthropology

As a complement to the Planetic, we propose Holistic Anthropology - a science of:

(a)  liberation of man from any form of his superstructure and product of his creation;

(b) liberation of the individual from the social structure and historical tendency to destruction, as an answer to the alienated and expropriating obscurity of the definition of what is appropriate to man, etc.

In all three, there is a common starting-point of the New Objects of Knowledge directed towards a Better Future.


Ioannis Zisis, Writer


The above text is part of the essay ENVIRONMENTAL THEORY AS A BASIS FOR A HOLISTIC, SYNTHESIS, AND PLANETIC SCIENCE deals with the need for there to be New Sciences, with different characteristics. The alienation of knowledge from the life of the scientist, the expropriation of its use in society because of the alienation of people and economic and political vested interests, as well as the deficit in knowledge on matters concerning the modern world impose upon us the formulation of the proposal for the development of those New Sciences which will bridge the gap between the alienation of technologies and the psychic depth of life and the human Being.

The essay will be published in stages. We believe that by the present series of publications we are contributing to the dialogue on a quest for a sustainable civilisation, looking to the future.
