The book develops a new world-hypothesis to ground all science, from the physical to the human sciences, that is already suggesting itself behind the advancement of quantum mechanics and Ashby’s cybernetics. In particular, it shows how Einstein’s misgivings about quantum mechanics boil down to his persistence in defending the principle of contiguity at the root of the modern cosmology and it discovers Ashby’s unknown theory of adaptive behaviour enabling a new synthesis between physiology, psychology and ethology, namely, Neo-cybernetics. Furthermore, this new “cosmology” comes with a new “anthropology” that informs Utopics, the science of utopic systems, and sheds new light on the actual founding fathers of the domain of human science. In particular, it provides an understanding of how our human world works and how it is being constituted by utopic systems that look into the future to realize something possible. Finally, the book demonstrates that the future unification of knowledge is logically possible.
