MSc Holistic Science

Schumacher College
Campus Full time September 2018 United Kingdom Totnes

Schumacher College in partnership with Plymouth University is the first in the world to offer a postgraduate programme in Holistic Science. Starts Sept 2018 [+]

Are you deeply concerned about the state of the natural world? Are you hoping to make a difference with your life and work? Schumacher College in partnership with Plymouth University is the first in the world to offer a postgraduate programme in Holistic Science. Western science is dominated by ‘reductionism’ – the idea that natural phenomena can be explained in terms of their component parts. Reductionism is incomplete, and can be counter-productive since it suggests that by analysing the ‘mechanical’ workings of nature we can fully predict and manipulate it. Holistic science recognises the limitations of this methodology, focusing instead on nature’s qualities, complexity and intrinsic value, giving a science fit to solve global challenges. What is Holistic Science? The programme explores new methodologies that are gaining success in exploring natural systems. These recognise that complex systems are dynamic processes realising their emergent properties as wholes – and that these properties are conditioned, but not determined, by the system’s constituent parts. The course provides methodologies that go beyond reductionism in understanding dynamic interactive systems, whether these are ecosystems, the weather, organisations, a plant or a developing human embryo. Students develop a holistic understanding of these systems and along the way learn to apply techniques such as computer modelling, intuitive perception and phenomenology. Of particular importance here is Goethe’s methodology as a way of meeting the whole through the parts. The programme advocates a participatory science of interactions, qualities, values and intuition, a science that is more capable of informing some... [-]
