----------------------

Reflexive human science examines laws of human existence (being-process), at both intrinsic level and level of constructed structured process: it reconstructs mechanism and dynamics, history and evolution. Examines relation of existence and being at level of individual and of species.

------------------------

Reflexive therapy is based on reflexive human science. It examines reflexive need, and manages it through guiding reflexivization. It is a guide for a scientific and centering - integrative - self-knowledge, with the potential, in self-organization, for including a reflexivized psychology able to 'be scientifically'. It is the self organizing itself to be scientifically. It is the human being-process becoming self-organized in a scientific way through use of scientific self-knowledge.

Useful in itself in life, reflexive therapy, as integrative foundation for developing reflexive self, useful for developing a reflexive approach to therapies generally. It is a specific information; and once assimilated can be applied as the basis for a therapeutic try for relief from specified forms of individual and collective suffering.

Useful in issues of what of it is being made to be and why: in relation to human science consultancy, human social research, research and methodology in the social sciences, human resources, colonization of/interference in the lifeworld/critical social theory*, critical systems analysis, the 'relating of fact to norm', authority and consent, functional requirements of systems-maintenance and people, ideology, the abolition of war, etc.

(*For 'colonization of the lifeworld': e.g. Jurgen Habermas' critical social theory; effects of constructed structured process on intrinsic structured process.)
