The transformation of 21st century science: From Parmenides to Heraclitus
Modern science has entered a deep crisis. This manifests itself in the excessive differentiation of knowledge, the disappearance of a holistic picture of the world, the lack of progress in solving deep problems. The way out of the crisis is possible when scientists master the synergetic style of thinking, i.e. thinking with “moving thought forms.” The paradigm of Parmenides, accepted in scientific thinking, is gradually being replaced by the paradigm of Heraclitus. The thesis “The One is essentially immobile” is replaced by the thesis “Everything is movement.” Fixed concepts become a special case of “moving concepts.” In logic, the law of identity can be replaced by the law of generalized identity. The new rationalism will require the transformation of a number of traditions of scientific knowledge.
