Synopsis: «Humankind is currently in danger of destroying, through the scientific knowledge of nature, the natural domain in which it lives. Any knowledge that is characterised by the fact that it annihilates what it seeks to understand, can not be true» (G.Picht).
Human ecology as an integrative science of the man-environment relationship is in search of a pathway towards knowledge which is «true» in the sense that it is committed to life.
