All forms of knowledge and feeling, ranging to the highest and noblest, must be explicable from our basic condition as a living creature, with needs, that speaks and is symbiotic. Axiological epistemology must be able to give an account of the emergence of axiological systems, of the sciences and the arts and of spirituality.
An important task for axiological epistemology is to give an account of how collective axiological systems were created in the past in the context of the different pre-industrial modes of survival, as well as why and how such systems change when modes of survival undergo change. We must study how religions come about and how they fell into crisis or others emerged. Axiological epistemology must be able to give an account of the shifts that occur when pre-industrial modes of life disappear, and of the consequences of such change for religions and for the cultivation of human quality. It will need to study how to formulate collective projects in the new societies of knowledge and constant change.
This section studies the creation of collective axiological projects in societies of knowledge. It suggests a general project for this type of society and for a research team. Finally, it studies how spirituality – profound human quality – should be cultivated in societies of knowledge.
