Philosophy of understanding

We equate scholarly interests in philosophic undertakings to individuals who pursue academic studies and subjects based on science, reason, objectivity, analysis, and tradition; understanding that the spiritual core of humanity account as the basis for society, culture, and civilization.

With this frame of reference, we can conclude the major source of any conflict and disagreement between the methods of reason, tradition, and the Divine Prescriptions arises because of tension between static assumptions and dynamic approaches to understanding reality.

The Institute for

Global Promise

Our philosophic reasoning presupposes a Global Promise espoused through succeeding ethereal deliverance down through the ages. They revealed a conscious reality of humanity as an entity of one, the resounding principle upon which a future world civilization will unfold, for which accords we make today will do much to facilitate humanity’s successive transition into the approaching new age augmented by wonders to be revealed.

The problem is that we do not see ourselves as having a role in the international system. In fact, the term globalisation has a negative connotation for various people, as if it represented a way of thinking that devalues and belittles our own country or our way of life. Others handle that problem by thinking of globalisation in terms of a simplistic conception of one world family; however, such metaphorical devices, while valuable, do not help make a ‘one world’, or a ‘one human family’ a reality. Necessary ingredients are there, based on the Principle of Oneness, but we know little about them. (Paraphrased) ⎯E. Boulding, Building a Global Civic Culture: Education for an Interdependent World. Pg. xviii, Teachers College, Columbia Univ., 1988.

The Institute For Global Promise works to provide a philosophical basis for the ‘one world’ concept, its ‘ingredients’, as a well-grounded and foundational requirement for philosophic enquiry premised on collective action. The institute collaborates and interacts with elements within the Prallagon global human development framework, as well as external sources, to create ‘new knowledge’ that reveals, identifies, and defines those ingredients inherent to the oneness principle, and provide clarity that meets the demand for new era transitional requirements.

Aristotle

"Aristotle’s analysis of reality is common sense and accessible in principle by anyone. A curious mind and probing thoughtfulness but no specialized equipment and no specialized experimental experiences are needed to verify the value of Aristotle’s analysis of reality"

Western Philosophy is Racist

Western Philosophy is Racist. Academic philosophy in ‘the West ignores and disdains the thought traditions of China, India and Africa. This must change because humanity can no longer depend on euro-centric ideas about the human family that’s steeped in ages of long-standing prejudices.

PHILOSOPHIC MEANS
TO MEET NEW ERA REQUIREMENTS

"Understanding can be understood in different ways. An empirical inquiry might use experiments, interviews, surveys, and the like to uncover the mechanisms that make understanding possible, or it might track the
historical arc of our various conceptions of understanding. By contrast, will be pursuing a theoretical inquiry, in which I use various formal and conceptual apparatuses to construct a model of understanding."

"A philosophical theorist of understanding [might use instruments that] are the tools of [a] specific trade. Thus, while the interesting theoretical concepts found in the cognitive and social sciences undoubtedly illuminate various aspects of understanding, [his/her] preferred instruments [might] come from epistemology and the philosophy of science."

"Recent philosophical work on understanding straddles these venerable fields crisscrossing with larger questions about justification, knowledge, and other cognitive achievements; the point and purpose of scientific explanation; the role of models and idealizations in scientific theories; and the pragmatic aspects of scientific inquiry. These and other philosophical forays provide a repository of ways to plumb the hidden depths of understanding." -Cambridge University Press (2017)
