Structuring of the course

 

An evolutionary curriculum is classified in fields of learning as follows: The world, the human and the society. The insight of the subjects are composed, according to the principle of logical consequences, corresponding to every module.

 

Module 1. WORLD.

Module 1 presents the origin and development of the physical word as well as the origin of different forms of life. It comprises various kinds of information about the origin and development of the Universe, our Galaxy and the Earth, and the genesis of living organisms up to human beings.

In the first cluster, the origin of the world is considered in terms of mythology, religion, and the dynamics of the scientific worldview. Thus, the students are able to observe the evolution of people’s views on how the Universe is constructed, and learn various approaches to the world outlook. In the second cluster, the history of the world and its origins is demonstrated in a consistent manner, with the proofs and hypotheses of modern science.

 

Module 2. HUMAN BEING.  

In the the second module human beings with all their complex issues are studied in their entirety. It comprises the knowledge about humans that has been gathered in different areas of science and art. The students learn various aspects of the topic, including physiology, psychology, ethics, law, etc.

The common logic underlying the module is Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. By analyzing basic needs, we can show the essence of human beings in its diversity, explain the reasons and objectives of individual behavior. The hierarchy of needs graphically demonstrates the higher spiritual goals of human existence; satisfying those means finding genuine harmony and happiness. The pyramid helps students realize how necessary it is to develop and realize their potential.

 

Module 3. SOCIETY.

 The intellectual evolution is shown in the “Society” module. It represents the social developments during the entire history of humanity.

Work on this module goes through two dimensions, or clusters, and includes systemic approach and analysis of major development aspects for (a) peoples/ethnic groups on all the continents from a global historic perspective, and (b) the society as a single civilization on the planet, respectively. Fundamental areas of social development represent the criteria for analysis within the whole project.

This module depicts, from a historic and global perspective, a majestic picture of how scientific knowledge, industrial skills and technologies, worldview and intellectual culture, as well as social, politic and economic structures appeared and evolved. The first cluster uses historic cross-sections for the lifecycles of social structures typical for our civilization, from the first associations of early humans through the international globalization patterns arising today.

The most important events are presented in different aspects of social development in a worldwide chronological order, as five global synchronous cross-sections:

1. Early humans.

2. Urban civilization.

3. Great empires.

4. Nation-states.

5. Globalization era.

As facts are studied, we gradually fill in graphic comparative tables to include the focal points of each section. The coordinates system for the section is the X-axis on one side, where geographic units (continents, countries, nations) are shown, and on the other side, the Y-axis, bearing the fundamental aspects of social development. Through multi-aspect synchronous analysis, the students can have a comprehensive idea of the major development processes of a civilization, in a historic cross-section (vertical).

In the second cluster, basic aspects of global social development (horizontal) are put through an end-to-end problem analysis. At this stage, the students discover characteristic features of evolution of a society, leaving aside the details and specifics of individual countries. As a result, they can review and summarize all the knowledge collected throughout previous modules.
