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.
Reflexive therapy is based on reflexive human science. It examines reflexive need. 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 being-process becoming self-organized in a scientific way.
Reflexive therapy can be useful for developing a reflexive approach to therapies generally. It is a specific information; and once assimilated it can be applied as the basis for a therapeutic try for relief from specified forms of suffering.
As an integrative foundation, reflexive therapy is useful in living, in issues of what of it is being made to be and why. It is useful 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.
(**The phrase 'colonization of the lifeworld' is from the critical social theory of Jurgen Habermas, developed in theory concerned with the effects of the constructed structured process on the intrinsic structured process.)
