Eugeniusz Górski John Paul II’s Idea of Universalism
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
In the history of human thought, various writers have called their philosophies universal, universalistic or simply “universalism”. Almost every philosophical or scientific theory claims to be of universal importance, to be a generalization and universality, but relatively few have believed that the term “universalism” to be the only adequate, and therefore only viable, description of their own thought system or newly constructed theory. Efforts to construct, develop or reconstruct a theory, viewpoint, vision or universalistic attitude—or merely to reinforce universalistic postulates—have long been undertaken in many different countries. Such attempts include those that implicitly assume or imply some sort of universalism. I would like to emphasize that I am principally interested in the visions, frequently appearing in Poland, whose authors, and not merely commentators, have defined their own philosophy, more or less refined, as universalism. John Paul’s universalism is a continuation of a tradition of universalist thinking lasting two thousands years. It makes it possible to look at the reality of the individual man and of the whole of humanity in their personalistic and communitarian dimensions at one time. Christian universalism has been closely tied to the concept ofuniversalism that was related to the Pope and imperial Rome, or even to Byzantium.

Arnold Tsofnas, Edward Demenchonok Universalism and Parametric Systems Theory
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
The parametric general systems theory is an adequate method of research in universalism. The article focuses on this theory and its formal apparatus—ternary description language. It shows the advantages of researching universalistic problems through the use of the systems method. Parametric systems theory can be helpful to universalism in acquiring the characteristics of a relatively rigorous scientific conception.

Napoleon Ono Imaah Synergy and Dialogue: Influence of Society on Architecture
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This paper acknowledges the fact human beings are social animals, as they tend to live in well-organized societies. However, human population expansion explodes into internal implosions that continue to wreck havoc globally on the social, economic, political, architectural, and aesthetic environments. To harness the universal territorial imperatives, of contending components harmoniously, the world requires synergy and dialogue.

William deJong-Lambert The Role of Po Prostu in the Denouncement of T. D. Lysenko
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This article describes the role of Po Prostu in the formal denouncement of Trofim D. Lysenko’s biological theories in Poland in 1956. Lysenko promulgated a theory of evolution, “Michurinism”, based upon the false notion that acquired characteristics can be inherited (“Lamarckism”). The outcome was a ban on genetic research that lasted in Poland from 1949 to 1956. The material for this article comes from the author dissertation, The New Biology: Lysenkoism in Poland (Columbia University, 2005).

Andrew Targowski Approaches to the Study of Wisdom
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
The paper defines different approaches to understanding wisdom by means of the following main categories: social, reflectional, methodical, and individual’s wisdoms. Each category is analyzed through a qualitative review of several subcategories, in sum 17 categories are taken into an account. The final conclusion is that there is no “one” wisdom unless one speaks about civilization wisdom. Definitions of wisdoms require further study based on the modeling approach.
