The Transdisciplinary Flow of Our Wolds - focusing on the contemporary globalization/regionalization,promoting long-term inter and transdisciplinary approaches upon the Third Millennium complexity, searching the (hypothetical) real pattern, the image and the ideal of the contemporary transdisciplinary and intercultural insight, this session would be the place for the readers to aggregate the concepts related to: 1. the connected problems of the Planet (life, culture-literature, religion, humankind history, ideology, science, morality, intelligence, education, production, entertainment, foresight plan events, poverty, welfare, sustainability, health, human rights); 2. the worth or/and worthless Knowledge Transfer as a basis for the new centennial future, and the recovering of the past; 3. the transition-net: universal-particular-planetary; post-modernism, trans-modernism balance; 4. a Science-Poetry-Philosophy-Theology-Arts ideal ring of the Real-Metareal-Transreal-Prereal circular worlds; 5. a focused interactive research on Science-Religion interface, and Education-Work interface.
DEDICATION to: ROMULUS VULCANESCU (1912-1999), INTERDISCIPLIARY SCIENTIST.
A huge interdisciplinary research was promoted by the "Sociological Academy from Bucharest” during 1921-1948, in Romania, through its founder Professor Dimitrie Gusti (1880-1955) and his disciples. They developed an entire system of knowledge stating social reality within "frames”: economical, spiritual, juridical, political – all of them under the simultaneous action of the "factors": cosmological boundary, biological, psychological, historic reality. Into this context, the "sociological parallelism law" was the main epistemic finding, regarding all these.
"Sociological Academy from Bucharest” had had the support from the chief of state. Just before the war it was reached an incipient social engineering upon the rural areas. After the war all the erected work was demolished by the communist regime. Some of the scientists were imprisoned or (as Dimitrie Gusti – taken away from his home) deported, or “re-educated” in prison and out of prison – deserving other crafts than their vocational one.
Romulus Vulcanescu was the last survival disciple of Dimitrie Gusti. After severe persecutions, and detention, step by step, he restored an university and academic recognition within Ethnology – into a more “relaxed” Romania. His last years are a real proof of the possible opening toward the profoundness of the mythological values versus contemporary topoi.
Inside the session dedicated to the "Transdisciplinary flow of our worlds," it is presented into a brochure, an audio-cassette and a CD the images and sounds – and mainly the ideas and friendship of/from the academician Romulus Vulcanescu. The interdisciplinary research inside the Ethnology Commission from Romania Academy (after 1993) and the reconstruction of some ethnological research into the School of Interdisciplinarity/1994/actual Group of Interdisciplinary Research (constituted from both Artificial Intelligence and transitional societies researches) from two levels structure into the Romania Academy: "Circular Dance – Hora and subtle systemic connections," "The logic of artificial items," "The human being, its mind, and the water pattern and reality," "The becoming of the the opening into the human mind."
