Explanation of Integral Thinking From the Contemporary Perspective of System

Jian WANG

Abstract


As a kind of thinking mechanism that grasps motion, change and development of objects on the whole, it has widely divergent content in development of human history and in practice of the times. When materialistic dialectics and contemporary scientific research go towards integration, integral thinking at a scientific level begins to have its embryonic form. Integral thinking contains a whole set of thinking principles, methods and operation procedures, plays the functions of guiding, selecting, evaluating and defending in scientific cognition and expands its “sphere of influence” in a wider scope.

Keywords
