FROM DIVISION TO INTEGRATION OF NATURAL AND SOCIAL SCIENCES BY “THE UNIVERSAL DIALECTICAL SYSTEMS THEORY”
The authors see interesting parallels between the development phases of physics (as a basic natural science), management/organization (as a science on orchestrating organizational parts for goal-focused leading and working in line with the law of requisite holism and resulting success), and systems theory (as a science on holism as a world view and methods to attain it) from determinism and division to realistic indeterminism by integration using information. Similar phases can be seen in Adam Smith's theory of economics. The authors suggest the introduction of the “Universal Dialectical Systems Theory” (UDST) as a common denominator of the values and methods of the requisitely holistic observation, perception, thinking, emotional and spiritual life, decision-making, and action by interdisciplinary creative co-operation and information, as a means to link natural and social sciences.
