Sample text

The following is a fairly appropriate formulation of the present situation in cosmology with respect to the aspects of wholeness related to it: 17 "All parts of the universe are, at least indirectly, causally related. Thus if we really understood these causal interactions, we might be able to prove that the universe could not self-consistently be made any other way than it is. In that case, we could aim eventually to understand all the universe by examining in complete detail anyone particular part of it; perhaps, for example, we could understand that there must be immense numbers of distant galaxies, because of the nature of everyday life.

Second: Given that a clear meaning has been found, distinct from the one with which * Originally published as Scheibe 1987b 1 Wertheimer 1925, pp. 2 Aspects of Wholeness in Science and Philosophy it is confronted in the previous quotation, is it really the case that modern European science was not also built on it but rather on the reductionist rival alone? Has science really been oblivious of deeper aspects of wholeness in the past, and is it at present? This has been doubted or even denied by living scientists.

Relations between elements, the analysis, and on the other hand the synthesis by composition of the ... elements to obtain larger complexes. (By contrast) the Gestalttheorie knows: There are connections where what happens to the whole cannot be derived from single pieces and their composition. "! Now in view of such formulations two questions arise. First: What on earth is meant by them? For other than in our ordinary talk of part and whole such phrases as that a part is determined by its whole and that a whole has internal structural laws are badly in need of explication.
