LOCAL AND NON-LOCAL
Brief and simplified discernment to complement and further elaborate the following Why are women philosophers often erased from collective memory? | Aeon Essays:
Since phenomena and experience can be beyond experience, comprehension, words, imagination, and conceptualization as expressed throughout the ages through metaphors such as "Beyond Experience", "Beyond Comprehension", Beyond Words", "Beyond Imagination", "Beyond Conceptualization", and among others; emancipation and expression or description of such phenomena and experience have to be expressed through creative senses making and constructed such as the arts and or philosophy. And even through metaphor of "A picture Worth Thousands of Words", it is nonetheless can be extremely broad and subjective (and which in the disadvantage also an advantage).
However, in order to better and more precise conceptualize or for realism experience and quest, philosophy is a method for diverse conceptualization from metaphysics. And beyond. And is a method to emancipate and import or interpret-translate from boundless realms to more specific concept and method. And in particularly for empirical development and practices or the scientific method and process. A simple way of stating is "Beyond Experience", "Beyond Comprehension", Beyond Words", "Beyond Imagination", "Beyond Conceptualization" cannot just simply lead to science and empirial realism when no such individual and collective experience, knowledge, understanding, concept, words, and method exist.
Another way of saying is arts and philosophy (and the humanities) can complement science. However, they are not or less necessary for many existing sciences and even extension of such sciences. However, for new ideas, concepts, and methods. And transcendence epistemic and ontic or to go beyond, they are essential since not only the human conditions, experience, and potential through universal process of being and becoming locally and non-locally are integrated and expressed; rather also expressed or conceptualized holistically.
And as empirical, all known scientific paradigms or evolution and revolution in physics were constructed or pioneered by individual and collective nature philosopher-scientist from Cosmology-Astronomy to Classical Physics to General Relativity to Quantum Sciences. And the empirical is further strengthen since when science and philosophy (and for that matter the humanities) were separated and more or less isolated approximately a century ago, no breakthrough has been made even through scientific fields and disciplines have increased or grown exponentially.
While science can also complement the arts, philosophy, and humanities. And as such, cycles of unitary and complementary or of greater and greater potentialities of possibilities. Otherwise, science without the arts, philosophy, and humanities would be able to capture nor experience wholeness of life and existence. And vice versa.
Another way of saying or as empirical examples, in the absence of the arts, philosophies, and humanities; the road to technoscience is paved. Another simple way of stating is lack of or devoid of the arts, philosophy, and humanities; is the path toward technoscience. While in the absence of science, the individual and collective would not be able to overcome false perception of the world and superstition.
And therefore, the arts, philosophy, and humanities are essential in diverse ways such as in empowering and liberating potentialities of possibilities of the essence and nature of being and becoming locally and non-locally. While also optimize, balance, and safeguard potentialities of possibilities or such as inclusiveness, diversity, pluralism, common ground, and greater good.
