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.

Due to that widespread cynicism, Art has troubles in finding its new manifests. It is lost in the labyrinths of thousands of intricate concepts focused on their local issues while humankind has unprecedented need of a global reunion in order to solve the current environmental and social problems.
