Science would not be 'popularized' but analysed from a fundamental A epistemological point of view, compelling the speakers and authors of papers to analyse the deeper non-el, structural, and semantic foundations of experience, as well as of theories. The layman would benefit because he would be given a structural education readily understood, without being led astray by the older A 'popularization'. Later, if economically feasible, it is intended to issue a monthly International Non-aristotelian Review, and also to organize International Non-aristotelian Congresses.
The-system was the result of the s.r of the white race of more than two thousand years ago; it built up the doctrines, institutions., appropriate to this system. In those days, knowledge was very scanty; the interconnection of different peoples, vague; the means of communications, very primitive,. It may be considered that science, and particularly mathematics, began a A revolution by explicitly searching for structure and adjusting the structure of the scientific languages, which we usually call 'terminology','theories',. Modern conditions of life are, to a large extent, affected by A science but exploited by the thoroughly A doctrines of the commercialists, militarists, politicians, priests, lawyers., which results in a bewildering chaos, resulting in needless, great, and imposed suffering for the great masses of mankind, as exemplified by such cataclysms as wars, revolutions, unemployment, different economic crises,.
A disciplines, or science as such, are thoroughly beneficial to mankind at large; but an A exploitation and use of these A products are, and must be, a source of endless sufferings to the enormous majority of mankind, leading automatically to every kind of break-down. It is impossible to give a fuller analysis of this complex interrelation, as this would require a separate volume; I shall, therefore, tabulate only a few overlapping suggestions.
