English abstract

Mankind is passing through historical moments of great change and transformation. The human being, from the centre of his own world, is trying to get to know and analyse the surrounding macrocosmos and microcosmos, also part of his environment, in order to discern and create his own mesocosmos. This process of anaysis and synthesis affects human activities related to the human intellect to such an exent that there is not an abstract or real idea, intellectual or mechanical action that does not undergo examination and evaluation. Information, as part of the mesocosmos, within the neosystems, is likewise thrown into confusion.

Spanish abstract

Se considera a la ciencia como un conjunto, una unidad de saberes, donde se integran las diferentes ramas del saber, formando un sistema complejo, abierto, evolutivo y borroso. Cada una de las diferentes ciencias, partes del saber humano, componen los holones de la ciencia unidad en interacción dialéctica. Se estudia la integración de las ciencias en sentido vertical ascendente y descendente. Esto supone un cambio de mentalidad, una visión más general, que podría tal vez, ayudar a la Humanidad a resolver los problemas que tiene planteados
