Consequences of a New World View

Understanding reality primarily in terms of matter seems to be a characteristic of modern thinking. However, the close relationship between matter and spirit rediscovered by quantum physics points us in a different direction.

Frido and Christine Mann, Thomas Görnitz, Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker and their co-authors examine the natural philosophical consequences of the findings of modern natural sciences and illustrate how they can provide orientation for our thoughts and actions. The texts examine how their findings can be applied to holistic psychosomatics as well as individual developmental psychology. They also examine practical consequences in the areas of digitalisation, politics, spirituality, environmental protection and pedagogy.
