The article draws on a variety of published and unpublished sources, including personal interviews with Walicki and Berlin’s archives at the New Bodleian Library in Oxford, England.

Napoleon Ono Imaah Synergy and Dialogue: Influence of Society on Architecture
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
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.

Andrew Targowski Approaches to the Study of Wisdom
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
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.

William deJong-Lambert The Role of Po Prostu in the Denouncement of T. D. Lysenko
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
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).

Arnold Tsofnas, Edward Demenchonok Universalism and Parametric Systems Theory
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
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.
