Historical backgrounds

Back there in the 18th century, Christian Wolff differentiated three types of ontological metaphysics, regarding the spirit, the world, and God. Later on, Wilhelm Dilthey divided two types of science: Human science and Natural science. Since then, we witness a great schism between what is considered to be, on the one hand, subjective and on the other – objective studies. The gap between Human and Natural sciences became bigger with the idea of falsifiability introduced by Karl Popper in the 20th century. In that picture, we could imagine that Social Sciences lay, somewhat, in the middle between the two already mentioned. The majority of the Social Sciences exploit the scientific methods borrowed from Natural Sciences (Antipositivism, or Interpretivism, is an exception), whereas Humanities mostly use critique, speculation, and comparative historical methodology.

The more we explore, the bigger grows our perception of the worlds beyond. Every single piece of extant matter on planet Earth contains the DNA of the entire Universe. We could only imagine how much pivotal knowledge, how many alternative energy sources, and important answers are waiting still hidden for us. Future lies out there in the vast cosmic ocean as Carl Sagan loved to say. Nowadays, these words sound even more relevant since we faced the limits of our home planet and the need to develop new sustainable solutions for the current environmental and social problems. The welfare of future generations depends on our mutual endeavors.
