2 Science 122 FUNCTIONS OF SCIENCE Hellmut Löckenhoff Dipl.Kfm. Dr.rer.pol. ©. Research Consulting Multiple approaches ( the proverbial elephant): multi-method, level…etc Evolutional/historical/universal/global turn: e. Morris, Tarnas, Kahmeman others The influence of the biology, geography; social state: G.Diamond. Morris, others Example: observable symbiosis: predator-prey relationships, parasitism The Tasmanian wolf – extinction; oscillation fox rabbit; steady balance Fennek snail. To find a framework for values and their eventual effects of the scientific approach to life on Human Life and life in general, return to - Evolution ( revolution – evolution ). - Complexity dynamics : (complexity, simplicity out of complexity) complement to - Meaning dynamics (Semiosis, Bio-semiotics) The Meaning - Relation to science Research on the way; indicating a value shift (and emotional shift ) -new Mathematics, logics (multivalued…) Modelling reflects purpose, the culture behind and the basic understanding of wo-man her/himself in their worlds Science appears as a means, which also effects the ends.

3 Science 123 ON SCIENCE AND CULTURE Hellmut Löckenhoff Dipl.Kfm. Dr.rer.pol. ©. Research Consulting Science as a means is what it affects in the actual environment. Worldwide the cultural dependency of science is seen as a advantage. Cultural idiosyncrasies undetected hamper efforts; the multi-cultural approach may open views and new potentials. Science evolved with (higher) consciousness within the potentials and constraints of biology, geography and social/societal status. It developed historically as part of the prevalent culture. The hard core of scientific investigation is co- shaped by indigenous values, habits, modes of argumentation, evaluation, validation a.s.o. As a formal concept science describes a mode of perceiving, co-evaluating and co- acting with the world as perceived on preponderantly cognitive terms. It is structured by formal modelling and particular rules of conclusion, evaluation and validation. The artefacts originating from science need be adapted into the particular culture. Roughly science may be seen as a counterpart/ a polarity to magic working with mainly emotional expectations and rituals. M The co-action with the world, e.g. the inner and outer environments, is aimed at efficiency and effectiveness (symbiosis, sustainability, drivability, potentiality).

4 Science 124 ON SCIENCE AND EPISTEMOLOGY Hellmut Löckenhoff Dipl.Kfm. Dr.rer.pol. ©. Research Consulting EPISTEMOLOGY Language of Science: models: formal, analogous, metaphoric, pragmatic ? The map is not the territory. Maps own their own specific logic: Epistemology as a means: heuristics, instrumental...for survival and development. It shapes thought and perception. Methodical rigorousity. It affects balances; competition <> cooperation, exploitation – preservation. Instrumentalisation for power…Misuse. Parasitism Its itself recursive, re-entry, emergent and subject of evolutional rules MODELS ARE DYED IN THE WOOL PURPOSE A Way Human Beings co-act and cope with the world. Unpredictably efficient and (therefore) dangerous. Evolved in general evolution, history; in particular: biology, geography, social status It also depends from our body, brain, inner/outer environments, brain physiology It needs adapt – and act in anticipation ( as in a. to adapt to and open potentials) Science is one of many ways to perceive, act upon; to be complemented by other means SCIENCE QUID PRO QUO LIFE Prometheus Pandora M Emancipating form mere belief, guessing, non-controlled experiences etc. science attempts a systematic, controlled and thus reliably repeatable results by methodical clearness and rigorousity.

7 Science 127 N th ORDER SCIENCE: EPISTEMOLOGY Hellmut Löckenhoff Dipl.Kfm. Dr.rer.pol. ©. Research Consulting The Life Paradigm has been grounded and extended by advanced biology research, the revitalisation of e. biosemiotics, but also by formal research complexity, fractals, re-entry etc. shaping forms of existence valid for transdisciplinary attempts. Accordingly systems sciences increasingly focuses for the last decennia to understand LIFE. The systems(cybernetics approach is integrated in disciplinary methodology; Systems thinking itself focuses on life. See e.g. the key phenomenon of anticipation ( R. Rosen, followers). Transdisciplinary epistemology is to be developed grounds on and applies also evolutional (and historical) approaches. Heralded e.g. by K.Lorenz in the 50 th ( Biology Paradigm), systems thinking (science and cybernetics) opened a view to grounded systematic methodical approaches to ‘soft’ sciences. The move met attempts e.g. in statistical psychology to adopt methodical rigorousity as far as substrates/correlates offered opportunity. Largely basing on systems and cybernetics gradually accepted methods were developed indigenous to the characteristics of the topic. Statistics in the widest understanding of the term were adapted, mathematical formulae were found to describe soft systems. Experimental models and interpretation, evaluation and validation modes were designed. The specific qualities of soft disciplines as sciences were explored. Historically Epistemology has been actually been dominated by the Physical Sciences and from Newton Physics. Emphasis prevails on measurement in physical measures. With Max Planck, Einstein, e.g.Quantum Electro Dynamics QED (Feinman) the mechanical Paradigm is extended, yet not officially profoundly accepted. Anthropologies, Humanities and other ‘soft sciences’ were not included and often attributed more to soft ‘philosophy’ than to scientific epistemology. M

16 Science th ORDER SCIENCE Hellmut Löckenhoff Dipl.Kfm. Dr.rer.pol. ©. Research Consulting MMM M  M *)D.L.Rapoport MMMMM The step to 4 th order science requests epistemological moves methodical rigorousity, cautious proceeding, critical interpretation and validation. Changes in the epistemological concepts e.g. of - the observer (endo-exo-) and - Recurrence, (self- Reference) reflexivity, re-entry, the Recursive Re-entry = Rreentry (Möbius, Klein Bottle *). Self-reference e.g. is discussed. Self-organization including self-organized learning need be scrutinized as to the assumptions behind. The possible impact on the networks of epistemological presumptions is to be reconsidered as well as consequences for its further development. The central phenomena of emergence may be affected. Religious people worldwide tend to be believers in spiritual phenomena. The interpretation of research on on physiological/psychological correlates and substrates needs be critical and epistemologically well grounded. There is danger of over-interpretation as well as uncritical rejection, not to name the role of vested interests and mental inertia (Th. Kuhn). Research will focus on process in an evolutional, historical, case bound frame. Mental constructs as ideology, myth, Weltanschauung, paradigms and personal convictions will be included. A particular epistemological base seems emerging. M MMMM M MMMMMMM M MM MMM M Being Basic Relations. Mental Constructs FRACTALS.

17 Science 1217 SCIENCE 4 th ORDER Hellmut Löckenhoff Dipl.Kfm. Dr.rer.pol. ©. Research Consulting MMM M  M In the positive: science of 4 th order manifests scientific access to mixed or pure mental constructs in the semiotic sphere. It will begin with the physical/physiological substrates and correlates to proceed to the investigation of the development and evolvement of mental constructs of all kinds. It will explore the structures and processes active in the realms of spirituality, of ‘rare normal phenomena’ as shaman practices but also the conditions of creativity or of mental aberrations. The field appears very extended and most various. MMM MM A view on human life conditions and the inner and outer environment corroborate. With each level of consciousness and in particular higher consciousness the mental and (pricipally) the action and option space, the space of enacting mentally and (limited) materially become wider able to imagine virtually many levels. Language, (implying communication) and culture make mental constructs possible. They are at least valid for many levels not confined. Ideologies, religions, but also the mental constructs of individuals mentally unbalanced make missing mental restrictions within a very wide range obvious. M MMM M M M MMMM M 4 th order science stands less for a 4 th stage than for the openness of science for more sophisticated, more inclusive or specified levels. In systems and cybernetics an infinite sequence of meta- observers of observers can be postulated. Similar meta-levels can possilbly distinguished e.g. in the learning process. Science will adapt to the granulation (as in complexity sciences) following the specifications of the topic. MM MMM M

Research Consulting MMM M  MMMMMMM M M MMMM M MMMMMMM In particular complex life phenomena, units, topics are (complementarily?) understood explicitly from the qualities of the process they were shaped by, emerged from etc. and as a result of processes. Examples: a)the emergence of semiosis from molecular coding in pre-life stages (Biosemiotics, Marcello Barbieri); b)b) the conceptualisation of perplex numbers on the base of atomic numbers (Jerry Chandler); c) the development of the computer as seen from programming and not solely from computation theories as in AI ( Boris Sunik); d)research on the prime numbers as a probably proposed code (Peter Plichta). e)There is a strong connection to the ‘relational sciences’ as first proposed by R. Rosen and now manifested e.g. in ‘relational’ biology. MM MMM M
