This is the first essay I submitted as part of my coursework for my MSc in Holistic Science at Schumacher College

The Transformative Process in Holistic Science


Holistic Science is the uniting of the science of quantities with a science of qualities. A science of qualities goes beyond the logical and deductive modes of thinking to include sensing, feeling and intuition. This paper explores how this approach, via two contrasting holistic scientific protocols, can lead to a greater appreciation and understanding of the phenomena under investigation, if the scientist is allowed to dwell within the phenomena, and become transformed by the phenomena, rather than always attempting to remain objectively outside of the phenomena under investigation.
