"If we compare a priori the complexity inherent in chemistry and that inherent in ecology, we need only reflect that the characteristic units of the former – atoms or molecules – are interchangeable if they have the same name and surname. These units have no memory; the properties of an atom of oxygen will be invariable regardless of its history, always assuming that we are able to monitor it and thus speak of it in these terms. However, two organisms of the same species, even though genetically equivalent and compatible for reproduction, are not equal and interchangeable. In general, not only are there individual genetic differences, but individuals – or any of the entities that ecology studies – possess a history, have a memory, and in a certain way are unique."

The nature of language cannot be properly explored by a type of psychology which is centred on the individual. Nor does it fit into the main stream of sociology which so far neglects the paradigmatic information which the complex 'knowledge, language, memory and thought' requires. Sooner or later it will become necessary to examine critically the presently ruling division of labour among human or social sciences..

Les progrès des sciences sont liés non seulement aux spécialisation

                                           disciplinaires, mais aussi aux transgressions de

spécialisation,

à l’édification de théories générales et aujourd’hui à

des regroupements polydisciplinaires.

                                                        (Albert Bastardas Boada  &  Edgar Morin, 2010, UB)


De même que la qualité de l'image hologrammatique est liée au fait que chaque point possède la quasi-totalité de l'information du tout, de même, d'une certain façon, le tout en tant que tout dont nous faisons partie, est présent dans notre esprit. La vision simplifiée serait de dire: la partie est dans le tout. La vision complexe dit: non seulement la partie est dans le tout; le tout est à l'intérieur de la partie qui est à l'intérieur du tout!

 

                                                                                    Edgar Morin


Partout, le sujet se réintroduit dans l’objet (...),

partout, chaque chose, chaque être

demande à être réinséré dans son environnement. (...)

Partout, on est poussé à considérer

non des objets clos et isolés, mais des systèmes

organisés en relation co-organisatrice

avec leur environnement.

 

Edgar Morin



Toda estructura relativamente autónoma y  estable (...) no debe considerarse como algo que existe de forma independiente ni permanente, sinó más bien  como un producto que se ha formado en la totalidad del movimiento fluyente y que finalmente volverá a disolverse en este movimiento. Cómo se forma y se mantiene, depende de su lugar y de su función en el todo. 

                                                                                                                                                    David Bohm


 

 

 

“Wisdom is a way of thinking, not just an accumulation of experience. (...) Wisdom looks around broadly, and into the future beyond the immediate consequences. Wisdom is concerned with context and with circumstances. Wisdom looks at interconnections and interplay. Wisdom looks at possibilities and alternatives. (...) Wisdom considers the behaviour of non-linear systems instead of forcing everything into the linear model”

 

                                                                                  Edward de Bono 


 


 

Multi-dimensional models of human societies are needed in order to come to grips with the empirical evidence. The difficulty is that social scientists and sociologists in particular are still captives of a philosophical science theory which started with Descartes and took its cue from physics at that early stage of development. (...) Theoretical models of the type we call universal laws or generalizations were sufficient and sufficiently reality-congruent to serve the requirements of physicists at that stage. (...) But for some time now they have been supplemented even in the physical sciences themselves by theoretical models which, unlike laws, are multidimensional  and which make it possible to handle experimentally data about objects such as large molecules, genes and chromosomes with several levels of integration acting and reacting upon each other.
