Basarab Nicolescu: "The Idea of Levels of Reality and its Relevance for Non-Reduction and Personhood"
The transdisciplinary notion of levels of Reality is incompatible with reduction of the spiritual level to the psychical level, of the psychical level to the biological level, and of the biological level to the physical level. Still these four levels are united through the Hidden Third, which however can not be captured in a theory. The transdisciplinary notion of levels of Reality leads to a new vision of Personhood, based upon the inclusion of the Hidden Third.
