Integrative and Holistic Philosophy

1994 Merriam-Webster, Inc.: holism
1994 Merriam-Webster, Inc.: holism1: a theory that the universe and esp. living nature is correctly seen in terms of interacting wholes (as of living organisms) that are more than the mere sum of elementary particles 2: a holistic study or method of treatment

Dualism to Holism
Reconnection : Dualism to Holism in Literary Study, by Betty Jean Craige

Focusing attention directly on the whole
A philosophical position claiming (a) that WHOLEs cannot be taken apart (see ANALYSIS) and (b) that every apparent whole can be understood only in the CONTEXT of the larger whole containing it.

Hierarchy (atom to organism)

Hierarchy (Population to Biosphere.)

Holism
The principle that a higher level of order cannot be meaningfully explained by examining component parts in isolation.

The Whole as the Sum of Its Parts
Mathematical holism has a number of counter-intuitive ontological consequences -- none is more 'real' than another; they are all equally real; they are all equally parts of the world.

Weak nesses in the holist position
Holist literature abounds with counter-examples to the reductionist thesis. Some of these are seriously intended as absolute counter-examples.

Wesley, Calvin, & the Holism of Salvation
Teaching theology in an evangelical and ecumenical school of divinity has led me to appreciate more fully the holism of John Wesley's understanding of salvation.

What is Holistic Anarchism?
Alas, I am not going to explain what I mean by "holistic anarchism." You'll have to make up your own version. I hope the process is as fulfilling for you as it has been, so far, for me.

Integrative and Holistic Policies

Differentiating holistic practice and speculations
New roles and approaches are developing in relation to the holistic health movement.

Holistic and Scientific World Views
One's world view influences one's perceptions of socialization experiences and social situations, and modulates the effects of both on practice patterns.

Palliative care
Advocates of palliative care are suggesting that cost-effective holistic care strategies should be available to patients and families throughout the illness trajectory, not just reserved for end of life care.

Professional, ethical, and legal implications...
Spirituality, as an important aspect of wellness, is indispensable in nursing care.

Spiritual Healing as a Workable Interpretation.
Holism is spoken of frequently in the nursing and medical press, linked with alternative or complementary practices, but on examination appears to have much greater depth.

Spirituality and practice
We convened a gathering of a hospital chaplain, a social worker, a hospice nurse and a physician to discuss many of the dimensions of spirituality and then to apply their personal and professional paradigms of care to a discussion of an actual case.

The linkage model
Growing recognition of the interconnections between physical and mental health has generated interest in finding ways to link these sectors of care.

Why patients use alternative medicine
Holistic medicine users are dissatisfied with conventional medicine but also they find Holistic medicine congruent with their own values, beliefs, and philosophical orientations toward health and life.
