This section addresses axiological epistemology and the cultivation of the absolute dimension of the real. Cultivation of the absolute, selfless dimension falls to axiological systems built with specific reference to the particular features of our human condition; we have an inherent need for access to both dimensions of the real: the functional dimension and the selfless or absolute dimension. Axiological systems must encourage and induce cultivation of the second dimension of the real, and must lead individuals and groups to turn to the great teachings of the masters of past generations, found in humanity’s great religious and spiritual traditions.
The new axiological systems must warn of the urgent need to cultivate this dimension so that individuals and communities may possess the human quality needed to prevent our technoscience from working against us and against all life on the planet.
The section analyses the diverse uses of language. Principles of axiological epistemology are collected and methodological observations made.
