Natural Philosophy: Beyond The Undulant Quiescence

Iona Miller


Like pandisciplinarian research, natural philosophy explores the cosmos by any means necessary to understand the universe. A strategic model retains usefulness for comprehending our own nature in the environment, beyond yet integrated with the models of science. Transgressing the fortified boundary between natural science and the humanities, the hidden language of the archetypes of nature helps us translate the dynamics of our Being and Becoming. A multidisciplinary approach can present and explore a variety of theories without advocating them, ideally leading toward best practice. Complexity demonstrates a science of surprise that supersedes the boundaries of nature and culture, transcendental theorizing or unreflexive presumption. How can we understand the various cooperative effects of systems, whether they belong to physics, physiology, psychology, biology, etc.? In contrast to the analytic reductionism of classical science, systems philosophy integrates theory and philosophy to foster reorganization of thinking and knowing perceived reality. Rather than explaining what things are, we explore and describe how things work. Meta-narratives bind society and cultures together, integrating events and actions into meaningful patterns. The world of experience remains one of perceived reality and worldview.
