Managing the Unified field of Reality
The paradigm shift in science, based on the emulation of the triadic structure of nature, was developed by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute to solve the need of having reliable knowledge to deal with nature and complex adaptive systems. It allows managing complex adaptive environments as unified fields. The Unicist Approach was triggered in 1976 by the fallacy of considering empirically-justified knowledge as reliable knowledge. It substitutes dualistic empiricism by a triadic, pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist approach that uses a conceptual approach to deal with complex environments, integrating observable facts with the “nature of things”.
Unicist Approach: A Conceptual Approach to Emulate Nature
The concept of an entity emulates its nature and allows defining its unified field. In plain language, conceptualization implies knowing what one is truly doing by having the concepts of the actions. It requires having their functional structure and being able to transform the concepts into value adding actions. The structures of concepts are cross-cultural and timeless. They remain unchanged as long as a function exists. Having the concepts of what one is doing allows being extremely effective and flexible. An individual can adopt new operational technologies without needing to change because the concept remains the same.
Immanuel Kant (1724 – 1804) gave a functional meaning to the word concept, considering it as the framework of any possible action. Peter Belohlavek went further. He developed the epistemological structure of complexity science that uses a conceptual approach to deal with complex adaptive systems that integrated philosophy, science and action in a unified field: reality. This approach allows emulating the organization of nature.
The use of the unicist approach to deal with the adaptive aspects of systems implies managing their concepts and requires using maximal strategies and minimum strategies. The approach to conceptual structures of reality allows managing its nature but requires going beyond dualistic thinking in order to apprehend the dynamics of complex adaptive systems.
