The reductionisms observe Man from fragmented viewpoints, for example as organism, as physical-chemical system, as society being, as psyche, as producer and user of language and meaning. But what becomes of the wholeness? What unites all this knowledge to a total image of Man? The reductionisms´ explanations of this always end up as philosophical shipwrecks. Reductionisms are philosophical viewpoints, which under cover of being science seek to answer the question of Man, or reality as such. In...

Our wonder over Man becomes philosophy, when it reaches the question of Man as such. Philosophy throws out answers to the question, argues for the answers and investigates their consequences. This happens first of all by reflecting and meditating over the things, not in an experience-scientific way, or by using theories as starting point. In this article I show what differentiates philosophy from science, psychotherapy and religion.

What is Knowledge Representation? Knowledge representation provides all of the ways and means necessary to reliably and consistently conceptualize our world. It helps us navigate landscapes of meaning without losing our way; however, navigational bearing isn't the only advantage. Knowledge representation aids our recognition of what changes when we change our world or something about ourselves. It does so, because even our own perspective is included in the representation. It can even reveal to...

How can we know whether life is a dream or not, or whether we are brains-in-jars getting all our perception from computers? This article should be seen in relation to my concept of The Matrix Conspiracy.

Abstract The theory of evolution suffers from an extreme unclarity and can be understood as: 1. A naturalistic, materialist and atheist theory of the origin of life and species : this theory that transforms evolution into a creator-god or -idol is in no way scientific but purely (pseudo-) philosophical and can be refuted philosophically. The “principles” behind such an “ideological evolutionism” (chance, mutations, natural selection) can only absurdly be thought to be sufficient causes...

The Matrix conspiracy is a mix of postmodern intellectualism, management theory, self-help and New Age, which together constitute a global spreading ideology. This ideology is created by The Mythology of Authenticity – a mythology where everything is about becoming and not being. This mythology has two world images: humanistic psychology and constructivism. And these two world images again have two methods: psychotherapy and coaching. The mythology is characterized by magical thinking (you...

The Law of Attraction is a metaphysical New Thought belief that “like attracts like”, that positive and negative thinking bring about positive and negative physical results, respectively. In this article I show how New Thought redefines karma in a distorting way, why it ends up as a kind of black magic, and the numerous ethical problems involved.
