The Man and his Work

Action for better scientific approach to the subject of human settlements: the Anthropocosmos model

The purpose of this study is to help us clarify Anthropocosmos and to understand how we can be more successful in dealing with human settlements. Anthropocosmos is our system of life and human settlement is our goal. Its purpose must always be to serve Anthropos and not any individual interests that work against the broader human goal.

The basic tasks of this study are to define:
1. the overall concept of Anthropocosmos
2. the notion of human settlements
3. the language we should use
4. the taxonomic frame
5-8. basic classifications
9. a working model of Anthropocosmos
10. the selection and evaluation of data
