The Functionalist Approach to Science

The objective of the Unicist Approach to Complexity Sciences was to find a scientific approach to understand nature and provide a structure to emulate it when designing, building or managing complex adaptive systems. This gave birth to the functionalist approach to science.

The Unicist Research Institute has changed the paradigms of complexity science research.

The unicist functionalist approach to science was developed by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute. Before this approach, there was no knowledge that all the things that are part of a system have a structure, which defines their functionality.

This structure can be known or unknown, but its functionality can be measured by the emergences. The knowledge of the functional structure of things required building a bridge between physics and metaphysics, which has been called functional knowledge and defines the triadic structure of the functions that make any system work.

This structure is defined by a purpose, an active and entropic function. and an energy conservation function. These elements are integrated by the complementation and supplementation laws and their functionality is driven by the laws of the unicist logic, which is an emulation of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature.

This approach opens the possibility of dealing with adaptive environments and understanding and influencing the evolution of things.
