Abstract [en]

The status of the social and human sciences as genuine sciences on a par with the natural sciences has widely been held in doubt, and the subject-oriented approach (SOA) to knowledge also shows the traditional scientific view to be misleaded. Its shows that it is mandatory to dismiss the idea that personal knowledge is a representation of a common world created by some God, and also the mistake to take the seductive noun/verb structure as for given. We need a new methodological paradigm of science—an approach that avoids the pitfalls of dualism and realism—and take the effort to couch its thinking in a re-interpretation of natural language. This line of reasoning paves the way for the SOA—a new epistemology that takes the individual knower and its feelings as the coherent point of departure. The traits of a new foundation are sketched and to that end a bootstrap model is proposed that departs from the early man’s first experience. In doing so, we, in a subject-oriented manner, can bring man’s living experience and his priverse (or private universe), under the collective umbrella of a consensual science. This approach brings the promise to provide a sound theory of everything—or rather a theory of every thin/kin/g—which in one step removes the cleft between the natural and social sciences.
