Example text

It is the momentary entanglement of the subsystems that is at stake. Under the assumption of general validity of quantum theory this entanglement would be an excellent explication of our metaphoric description of the world's being a monolith. In this paper I tried to show that usually rather vague philosophical aspects of wholeness can be given more or less precise interpretations in ordinary science. This is not to say that all such aspects have been or can be considered in the way here suggested.

This abstract formulation can be given an ontological illustration by the idea that reality is, as it were, a monolith. Previously I confronted the rationalistic view of total coherence with Wittgenstein's logical atomism. If both positions are given an ontological interpretation they could be called "ontological monism" and "ontological atomism" respectively. The former could be illustrated by the picture of reality being a monolith. The latter is more than an analytic method to depict the phenomenal variety of reality.

The question of how to elaborate positively such a concept of explanation goes beyond the limits of the present study. , p. 337. 2 Aspects of Wholeness in Science and Philosophy* Introduction In daily life we are well acquainted with the meaning of the English adjective "whole" and its grammatical relatives.
