“Man stands like a narrow doorway in the landscape“
The internet has changed the world because it changes some of the most important things human beings do: talking and trading. Many things are on the internet, including science, but have they become like the internet? The academic roots of science are in the pre-internet age of local institutions. The theories we accept today were produced by people who could not conceive what we can conceive today, or question what we can question today.
My name is Jose Maanmieli and I created this project through several articles you can find in our journal. In them, I put forward a theory of human behaviour that centres around the nature of language. This theory aims to explain why human beings do the things we do, not to tell anyone what they should do. The theory actually addresses why we confuse these two things, and what that confusion has to do with what we call science.
I suggest that biology, the study of life, be understood as providing many of the answers that have traditionally been expected from philosophy. Biology provides the necessary grounding in real life to avoid getting lost in formal or romantic abstractions, and to achieve consistency among theoretical perspectives. My research thus covers psychology, anthropology, and linguistics primarily, but also economics, psychiatry, art, literature and other fields.
The original meaning and essence of truth in Ancient Greece was aletheia: disclosure, unconcealment, the bringing of what was previously hidden into the open. This meaning is different from the common interpretation of truth as correctness or certainty, which is burdened by moral assumptions that go deep into our nature.
Meet the Team
I studied physics but worked as a musician most of my life. I have approached the sciences of behaviour from an independent perspective, looking for the conceptual and empirical consistency that characterises good theories.
I have built a career in mental health care and worked as a poetry therapist for 15 years. My research is focused on the creative and emotional aspects of written language. Alethes.net provides crucial theoretical support for my research.
