The objective of the research works led by Peter Belohlavek at The Unicist Research Institute has been the development of solutions to influence adaptive environments to foster their evolution. This research drove to a functionalist approach to science, which is in fact a pragmatic, structural and functionalist approach.
It is based on managing the functionalist principles of things and their synchronized binary actions that make things work. This approach allowed discovering the double dialectical behavior of nature and developing the unicist logic that allows understanding and managing the functionality of things.
This research requires managing the unicist ontological approach that defines things based on the unicist logic that defines their functionality and allows defining their dynamics and forecasting their evolution.
The unicist ontology defines the unified field of things based on their functionalist principles. Their research requires using ontological reverse engineering and their use is based on conceptual engineering.
The unicist evolutionary approach was created to manage adaptive systems and environments. It is based on the use of a triadic structure of the functionalist principles that is homologous with the structure that regulates the evolution of nature and the cosmos.
The core application of the functionalist approach to sciences was the development of maximal strategies to grow and minimum strategies to ensure survival using binary actions to manage functions in adaptive environments to ensure results.
This research is based on the use of Unicist Epistemology that is based on the development of logical foundations of the functionalist principles and empirical justifications of the binary action to validate knowledge.
This epistemology is a pragmatic, structural and functionalist approach that allows building reliable knowledge that replaced the processes of the falsification of knowledge by destructive testing processes.
This research led to the development of functional knowledge that builds a bridge between metaphysics and operational knowledge providing the functionalist principles and the corresponding binary actions that make them work.
