The term, "unology" was coined in 1986 by John E. Tobler to denote "the science and study of unity in all of its forms."
This list exists to encourage discussion of all aspects of the idea of unity. Do you have interesting references or links about unity? Do you have ideas about unity in art, science, philosophy, sociology, religion, mathematics, or human affairs?
What, exactly, do we mean when we say, "unity." Share examples from academia, from personal life, from your investigations into human affairs. How does unity differ from love, from harmony, from sameness, from wholeness? How do we recognize unity when we see it? When someone says an artwork "has unity" -- what do they mean?
How does unity relate to diversity? Some think that the best kind of unity is "unity in diversity."
How can we achieve unity -- most importantly in the human realm. Our world sorely needs more unity. How do we increase personal unity? How can two people become more unified? How about small groups? What about states and nations?
How can we apply the concepts and examples we can find of unity in all areas of existence to the solution of human problems and the effort to increase unity in our world?
Welcome to unology! By participating in this group, or even by just thinking about unity, you are entitled to call yourself a unologist.
May your pursuit of unology give you joy!
