The objective of the development of the Unicist Theory was to find a structural solution to deal with complex adaptive systems considering their characteristics. Complex adaptive systems have, among other aspects, open boundaries and are integrated by the conjunction of their elements. In such systems, there is no possibility for the existence of observers.

The Unicist Theory, based on the discovery of the ontogenetic intelligence of nature, allowed developing the four scientific pillars that provided the basics of the unicist logic based and objects driven technologies to manage human complex adaptive environments: Conceptual Economics, Conceptual Anthropology, Conceptual Psychology and Conceptual Management.

The Unicist Theory was originated by the need of finding responses to the question of why things happen in the social and economic world in order to influence evolution. It was triggered by the need of going beyond the empirical Know How that was used in the 70s to approach complex adaptive environments and the need to integrate it with a “Know Why”, that was inexistent.
