From Ontology To Ontogenesis In Three Stages

From Ontology To Ontogenesis In Three Stages

So here we bring two difficult multisyllabic words together not for purposes of intellectual show-boating, but because they have central meaning in the Ontogenica process (as as reflected in our name, of course).

So what do 'Ontology' and 'Ontogenesis' mean?

Clearly they share a common etymological root (Onto-) from the Ancient Greek ὤν (ṓn, “on”), the present participle of εἰμί (eimí, “being, existing, essence”). These two words then take this root in two directions: First, -logy gives us the notion of the Greek λόγος (lógos or “account”). Second, -genesis imputes the Ancient Greek γένεσις (génesis, “origin, source, generation, production, creation”). So on the one hand we have one’s account of what exists -- essentially one’s being -- and, on the other, the development of an individual through various stages of maturity. Simply put, these two ideas intersect at the point where your account of ‘what is’ (your being in the world) inescapably defines your stage of maturity as a particular ‘organism’ within a particular environment. The goal as we define it, then, is to continue the ‘genesis’, and to do so we need to engage with one’s account of one’s being and alter it.

Simply put, these two ideas intersect at the point where your account of ‘what is’ (your being in the world) inescapably defines your stage of maturity as a particular ‘organism’ within a particular environment.

Ontogenica’s specific focus is the human capital market situation of the individual, and to radically shift our clients’ ontologies we use a three-step process we’ve called Sociotechonomics. First, Ontogenica’s central value proposition for the supply-side (the individual) is predicated upon the core claim that to increase human capital, an understanding of both what human capital is and, critically, what it means to increase it, are necessary prerequisites. Sociotechonomics® brings together social theory, economics and technology in such a way as to make these admittedly complex theoretical ideas not only accessible but immediately capable of releasing significant value.

Second, once the individual’s ontology includes the very nature and the idea of human capital Ontogenica pivots clients toward an ontological analysis of the forces at work within human capital markets. Ontogenica first begins the process of inventorying, assessing, and refining the existing stock of human capital. Next, this human capital stock is valued in the harsh light of the human capital market forces that shape the market for the client as an individual or enterprise. Experience has shown that this process is at once the most disconcerting for clients and, ultimately, the most empowering.

Finally, Ontogenica leads clients through the process of ontogenesis, using maximising the return on human capital and the intelligent augmentation of human capital stock as a focal point. This process involves creating a bespoke programme of theory-based modules that incorporate practical work, assessment and group discussion. Here social theory, technology and economics are further integrated into an effort to further reframe the subjective ontology of each participant.
