I think we need a new ‘discipline’. One that takes into account the way the world actually works. I call this new discipline Sumbiology (from the Greek sumbios = living together, ology = a branch of learning and knowledge).
Sumbiology is the study of humans ‘living together’ with the totality of life. Sumbiologists study life-supporting relationships between people, other biota, ecosystems and bio-physical systems at places from the local to global scales.
Sumbiologists also study the dynamics of those relationships within Earth Systems so that decision-making about how a good life (Sumbioethics) and a good politics (Sumbiocracy) on this shared Earth can take place.
A ‘new’ idea that might emerge from Sumbiology as a transdisciplinary field of knowledge is the Sumbiversity (from the Greek sumbios = living together, plus Medieval Latin universitās = a group of scholars from the Latin for whole, totality, universe). A sumbiversity is an institution of learning devoted to supporting transdisciplinary collaboration between all the forms and types of knowledge humans have created. In the Sumbiversity, scholars will live and work together (collaboration, not competition), on the totality of knowledge needed to live on this Earth.
