Integrating Observable Facts with the Nature of Things
The unicist paradigm shift in sciences drove from an empirical approach to a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist approach to deal with complex environments, integrating observable facts with the “nature of things”. It implies the integration of epistemological justifications with foundations. It made complex adaptive systems reasonable, understandable and predictable. It allowed managing the world of possibilities going beyond probabilities. The objective of this development was to manage the unified field of complex adaptive systems in order to simplify their management.
This is an upgrade in sciences that integrated complexity sciences with systemic sciences and allowed emulating the organization of nature by developing a logic based and object driven approach to manage the adaptive aspects of complex environments.
The Unicist Theory
The Unicist Theory, developed by Peter Belohlavek, is a paradigm shift of the scientific approach to complex adaptive systems. It substituted empiricism by a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist approach and replaced knowledge falsification processes with destructive testing processes.
This theory provides an approach to complexity based on the use of the unicist logic that emulates the intelligence that underlies nature. It integrated complexity sciences with systemic sciences in a unified field.

The paradigm shift applied to Businesses
The Unicist Theory allowed understanding and influencing the evolution of living beings and artificial complex adaptive systems. This influence is exerted by using unicist logic based and object driven technologies, which is now a worldwide trend.

Unicist Epistemology sustains the paradigm shift
This epistemology is a pragmatic, structuralist and functionalist approach to knowledge.
The pragmatism deals with the goal of this epistemology, which is to provide reliable knowledge in order to generate added value. At the same time, structuralism is required to integrate the knowledge of an entity and its restricted and wide contexts. Finally, functionalism makes results be a core aspect of the validity of knowledge.

The Unicist Research Institute
NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in using the unicist logical approach in complexity science research and became a private global decentralized leading research organization in the field of human adaptive systems. It has an academic arm and a business arm.
