Phenomenologists or Continental thinkers argue for the subject-object continuum. For phenomenology, subjectivity isof the object, and object is for the subject. This book applies that continuum to the holistic foundations of work or specialization. The author devotes a chapter to each of eight cultural applications of the subject-object continuum. Chapter One examines the specialist-generalist continuum meaning specialization for general education. That continuum comprises the framework for the remaining seven chapters. Those seven include productionfor community, design for user, automation for user, computingfor society, taxation for society, information for manufacturing, and procedurefor goal. These eight applications constitute the basis for a core curriculum. The core curriculum gives holistic meaning, order, or cosmos to all jobs and to all people. Cosmos is a Greek word meaning humanistic-scientific order, irreducible to physics. The core curriculum is fundamental cosmology. Each of the eight continuities follow in a logical, systematic manner from the analytic-subjective continuum meaning objectfor subjectivity. Phenomenology of education can become the human basis of a promising holistic logic, bringing together analytic and existential themes.The computer is a modern invention Having begun essentially as a machine to rapidly solve mathematical problems, it quickly evolved into a symbol-processing machine to do something else also as rapidly as possible: display intelligence.
