  • Integral theory (Ken Wilber)
    Integral theory is Ken Wilber's attempt to place a wide diversity of theories and thinkers into one single framework.
  • Duhem–Quine thesis
    The Duhem–Quine thesis, also called the Duhem–Quine problem, after Pierre Duhem and Willard Van Orman Quine, is that it is impossible to test a scientific hypothesis in isolation, because an empirical test of the hypothesis requires one or more background assumptions (also called auxiliary assumptions or auxiliary hypotheses).
  • Gestalt psychology
    Gestalt psychology or gestaltism (German: Gestalt [ɡəˈʃtalt] "shape, form") is a theory of mind of the Berlin School of experimental psychology.
  • Modular design
    Modular design, or "modularity in design", is a design approach that subdivides a system into smaller parts called modules or skids, that can be independently created and then used in different systems.
  • Two Dogmas of Empiricism
    "Two Dogmas of Empiricism" is a paper by analytic philosopher Willard Van Orman Quine published in 1951.
  • Holism
    Holism (from Greek ὅλος holos "all, whole, entire") is the idea that systems (physical, biological, chemical, social, economic, mental, linguistic, etc.) and their properties should be viewed as wholes, not as collections of parts.
  • Structured programming
    Structured programming is a programming paradigm aimed at improving the clarity, quality, and development time of a computer program by making extensive use of subroutines, block structures, for and while loops—in contrast to using simple tests and jumps such as the go to statement which could lead to "spaghetti code" causing difficulty to both follow and maintain.
  • Belgitude
    Belgitude is a term used to express the Belgian soul and identity.
  • Implicate and explicate order
    Implicate order and explicate order are ontological concepts for quantum theory coined by theoretical physicist David Bohm during the early 1980s.
  • Complexity
    Complexity describes the behaviour of a system or model whose components interact in multiple ways and follow local rules, meaning there is no reasonable higher instruction to define the various possible interactions.
  • Indeterminacy (philosophy)
    Indeterminacy, in philosophy, can refer both to common scientific and mathematical concepts of uncertainty and their implications and to another kind of indeterminacy deriving from the nature of definition or meaning.
  • Process philosophy
    Process philosophy (also ontology of becoming, processism, or philosophy of organism) identifies metaphysical reality with change and development.
