Questions, comments and suggestions:

J.C. Smuts; "Father of Holism":


• To me the holistic aspect of the universe is fundamental, and appears to be the key position both for the science and the philosophy of the future.


• '....detailed things derive  most of their meaning, significance and functioning from the whole of which they are but parts.'


• From the parts it is never possible to reach the whole, because the sum of the parts still gives us a collection of partial and external relations and not that inward totality which constitutes the whole.
