integral holistic metapraxis

Book “integral holistic metapraxis

This will be the shortest book I ever wrote, perhaps you will ever never read a thinner book about a metapraxis ~ this is the word of Will’s instead of the word “model”~ for serious organizational and~or psychological issues within organizations and our society. It is powerful because of its simplicity, universality and flexibility. The ideology and philosophy were explained, extended and written down by a somebody whose own preferential world view was “Mythic”. Who else than some other Mythic can continue building on his intellectual heritage ? Here I am. 

In former books I already appointed to this metapraxis of Will McWhinney’s and his “The 4 world views”. In my 4th book I explained and described this metapraxis, I compared it with other systems, models and even phenomena to show its power and flexibility by associating it with the features and characteristics of other systems, models and phenomena. 

In this book I describe my extended metapraxis based upon the one of Will McWhinney’s. The focus of McWhinney is directed to the culture and the problems that emerge from that point of view. I make it a broader and associate it also to Psychology, in a way McWhinney might have intended that as well ~ so far I haven’t found anything about it in his books ~ so I extended his tendency by inventing and creating them myself during dialogues with some friends of mine, who use the worked with Will. I show you the power of combining imaginatively associations resulting into beautiful Imagethoughts and views that may lead you to answers more easily.

A very important aspect of this metapraxis is that it shows the 2 cultures within groups, teams and even organizations. You cannot find out it by comprehending this metapraxis, you have to experience that with the knowledge of this book as your tool. When you are capable to recognize the primary culture and its subculture and you are well skilled to present it in an acceptable way then these issues do not actually exist anymore. That’s awareness of the situation.

That’s also implicated in the individual power of identifying them in an objective and in a subjective way, where objectivity represents the primary culture and subjectivity the subculture. Experiencing values is all about the emotions of yours. These emotions are the motor of one’s personal development that may lead you to higher levels of intelligence and consciousness. These skills empower you to deal with serious issues.

So it is about (self) consciousness. Self Consciousness emerges from Self Identification. Therefore you need an integral collaboration of all your intelligences. The better this result the less you are “fixed” to 1 of these 4 world views, so free to move, think and (re-)act. 

I am a Mythic like Will McWhinney who drives upon my intuition and inspiration. In that way this book is the result of the power of creative association. This book is about thinking out of the box, daring to cross restrictions and barriers of most logical thoughts, use of language. Dare loosen management patterns, positions and convictions. Good luck.

A Quintet

Book “Debt & Penance” 

The developing of one is to be considered a vegetative, instinctive and rational life, 3 successive degrees and should not be seen as differences of intensity or degree ~ Aristotle ~ but as 3 different directions ~ Bergson !”

 “More precisely intelligence is before anything else, the faculty of relating one point of space to another, one material object to another; it applies to all things, but remains outside them.”

“A language is required which makes it possible to be always passing from what is known to what is yet to be known.”

Some psycho-sophers that are gathered by me. What are the similarities of these famous 5 ?

When watching an old debate about “Human Nature” between Foucault and Chomsky ~ in 1971 ~ I recognized lots of analogy the way Steiner and Jung discussed the way mankind and his or her way in developing consciousness.


The content of Chomsky reminded me to Bergson’s book “Creative evolution” although he used other terms and words. At first it is important to realize what Bergson meant with instinct, intelligence, intuition and sympathy.

It appeared that it would be easier to change 2 words into verbs in the use of processes, namely intuition and sympathy into intuiting ~ introspective ~ and sympathizing ~ extraspective characterized.

Here the “normal” words are instinct and intelligence. Since Bergson was a quite well educated biologist, to him the great difference between flora and fauna was the word “mobility”. That’s also where we see the difference between an animal and human; intelligence :”forms of (spatial) points that can be brought together”. In other words : ”the degree of solving potential that distinguishes mankind above the animal, the primate”. This word he used as a starting point for explaining the differences between instinct and intelligence. Instinct implies a static reservoir of values that can be consulted in a reflective way; it has often to do with survival and avoiding pain and (any) damage. It needs no intelligence in a “mobile or dynamic way” of thinking but only an immediate acting; the process of in-tuiting or consulting basic values.

Sympathy implies an extraspective process; more precisely. Intelligence is, before anything else, the faculty of relating one point of space to another, one material object to another. It applies to all things, but remains outside them. Here Bergson used explicitly and often the word “faculty” in his book where I use the word “intelligence” in my former books with its meaning being “the potential to be actualized”. Although sympathy may also rely on instinctive values ~ in a more emotional dimension like e.g. pain and joy. Besides of these small exceptions it seems that intuition and sympathy have their processes in opposite directions.

Also another addition may be that knowledge ~ properly so called and reserved to pure intelligence ~ intuition may enable us to grasp what it is that intelligence fails to give us and indicate the means of supplementing it. That’s why I proposed to consider the intelligence as a spectre, where the intuition is the integral energetic intelligence of all kind of intelligences. Please recognize the possibility to empower general intelligence by intuition.

Coming back to my introduction of the 4 plus one psycho~sophers I refer to Will McWhinney and also to Ken Wilber. Let me explain this to you. McWhinney we know of his “4 World Views” in some analogy with MBTI derived from Jung’s knowledge. Wilber we know about his 4 divisions as explained in my former books; we talked about plurality ~ “Community” ~ and singularity ~ “Individuality” ~ furthermore extended into “We and Its” and “I and It”. Foucault and Jung both approach mankind from this collectivum ~ you even may say “culture” ~ where Steiner and Chomsky approach mankind from this individuation ~ you may say “individual identity
