  • Humanity Takes Flight: An Exploration Into The Contributions Of David Loye
           and an Introduction to this Issue of Interdisciplinary Journal of
           Partnership Studies

    • Authors: Emily Abberton
      Pages: 1 - 1
      Abstract: This article introduces Volume 9, issue 2 of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies and the issue’s theme of ‘moral sensitivity’ and its connection to the late evolutionary systems scientist and psychologist David Loye. The article will further highlight how Loye came to reconsider and reinterpret Darwin’s work on human evolution, and why this is expressly relevant to navigating the current challenging times we are living through. Additionally, this article will briefly describe the contents of this issue and highlight the diverse collection of contributing authors.

  • Moral Sensitivity, Moral Transformation, and Evolutionary Scientist David
           Loye: An Introduction

    • Authors: Riane Eisler
      Pages: 2 - 2
      Abstract: This article introduces the two major themes of this issue of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies: moral sensitivity and transformation, and honoring the late evolutionary systems scientist David Loye. The article shows how these two themes are integrally interconnected. Loye introduced the term “moral sensitivity” as well as the distinction between “partnership moral sensitivity” and “dominator moral insensitivity” or “moralism,” showing how the latter has been used to push us back to “strong-man” rule, violence, and injustice. He was the first to reclaim what he called “Darwin’s lost theory” based on Charles Darwin’s long-ignored writings about human evolution, including what Darwin called “the moral sense.” Quoting from some of Loye’s more than 30 published books as well as a sampling of articles, the article highlights his gift of bringing to life the people and times he wrote about, including the men and women he called “the great scientific explorers of the better world.” Colorful examples from his many writings illustrate how Loye advanced the study of human evolution through his offerings on moral sensitivity, clarifying much that is otherwise obscured, and showing his enormous contributions to a better understanding of our past, present, and the possibilities for our future. The article provides new terms and new ideas for building a more equitable, less violent, more sustainable future through the works of a man first known for his prize-winning book on the immorality of racism, whose later works focused on how we can create a future where we not only survive, but thrive.

  • Moral Sensitivity and Our Interconnection With One Another and Nature: A
           Conversation With Ervin Laszlo

    • Authors: Riane Eisler
      Pages: 3 - 3
      Abstract: Riane Eisler, Editor-in-Chief of the Interdisciplinary Journal of Partnership Studies, interviews pioneering systems philosopher, scientist, and global activist Dr. Ervin Laszlo, about his work with the late evolutionary systems scientist David Loye on moral sensitivity, evolution, and the need to move from a linear to a whole-systems approach to meet our mounting global environmental, economic, social, and personal challenges.

  • Human Morality: Love or Fear, Partnership or Domination

    • Authors: Darcia Narvaez
      Pages: 4 - 4
      Abstract: David Loye pointed us to one of Charles Darwin’s aims that often has been overlooked, to explain the evolution of humanity’s moral sense. Most people focus on Darwin’s aim to explain speciation, changes in traits across generations. In studying the moral sense, Darwin assumed it was innate, though he found it more evident among non-Western peoples he met than among his British compatriots. His finding is not a surprise if you understand when and how most human sociomoral capacities are shaped—after birth, by immersive experience. Humanity’s evolved developmental niche, or evolved nest, appears to be crucial for the development of moral sense because it provides the support needed to optimize the development of psychosocial neurobiological systems. To reestablish and maintain the moral sense, humanity needs to restore the provision of the evolved nest to all people, especially children.

  • The Gift of Partnership

    • Authors: Stefano Mercanti, Antonella Riem
      Pages: 5 - 5
      Abstract: Riane Eisler’s partnership model and David Loye’s theory of Darwinian moral sensitivity are effective interdisciplinary frameworks for highlighting the dynamic interplay between dominator and equalitarian constructs that shape the history of our time. In this period of limited individual freedom and impending predatory globalism, branded as philanthropic altruism and environmental sustainability, this article uses both theories to offer life-enhancing and caring scenarios to move beyond top-down elitism and to promote a culture of peace.

  • What if Descartes had been a Woman' An Epistemology of Empathic

    • Authors: Jonathan Lyonhart
      Pages: 6 - 6
      Abstract: An underlying assumption of much of public and academic discourse is that logic is a universal language transferable between humans, regardless of gender, race, religion, class, or culture. Conversely, personal experience is seen as simply that: personal. It may be a powerful way to illustrate a point or imbue it with passion, but it is not an argument in and of itself. Personal experience is particular, subjective, non-transferable, and ineffective due to its affective-ness. Yet our definitions of universal rationality have themselves been formed within particular contexts, primarily by Western males. Applying recent studies in the social sciences to a broader theory of knowledge, this paper will ask what androcratic assumptions males have brought into epistemology and what perspectives females have had to leave at the door' Specifically, is there a long-ignored partnership paradigm of female empathy (regardless of whether it is biologically or socially ingrained) that legitimates personal experience by allowing it to be transferable between humans' What might such a gylanic approach to knowledge yield for future ideologies and their corresponding social, political, and academic institutions'

  • Healthy Work Environments: An Interprofessional Partnership Model to
           Promote Positive Workplace Culture

    • Authors: Judith Pechacek, Deborah Anderson , Rob Lund, Laurie Drill-Mellum
      Pages: 7 - 7
      Abstract: Background: Healthy work environments (HWEs) are a primary focus of leaders in health care. Many nurse- specific HWE initiatives exist to improve workplace culture; however, workplace harm persists. An interprofessional partnership model is needed to sustain healthy workplace cultures to promote engagement among providers and employees, and safe, high-quality patient care. Methods: The 5-Stage Process® is a method for teams to openly examine workplace behavior, co-creating their future using continuous quality improvement strategies of Team Building, Assessment, Implementation, Evaluation, and Sustainability. To ensure success, each stage should be completed with focused attention to the concrete strategies the team needs to take to sustain the healthy work environment. Results: The entire 5-Stage Process® was used by interprofessional teams from the specialties of Perinatology and Radiology at major health care institutions in the Midwest and Perioperative in the Northeast United States. Each team implemented one-on-one conflict resolution techniques, and one team noted improvements in employee engagement scores from 60% to 86%, patient satisfaction from 74% to 85%, safety perception scores from 70% to 79%, and teamwork perception scores from 82% to 84%. Conclusion: The interprofessional partnership 5-Stage Process® may be a successful method to continuously improve workplace cultures and ultimately improve patient safety and provider and staff satisfaction. Sustaining healthy work environments requires leaders’ constant focus and dedication to partnership techniques to ensure that new healthy behaviors persist.

  • Thinking of Ourselves as Humanity in the Age of Complexity: A Tribute To
           David Loye

    • Authors: Mauro Ceruti
      Pages: 10 - 10
      Abstract: The work and the life of David Loye were prophetic, able to read the signs announcing a new human condition and the need for an anthropological metamorphosis. His foresight was undoubtedly rooted in his profound cosmological and anthropological vision of evolution, which marked his life and his thought. I cherish the memory of the overwhelming emotion with which, in a conference in 1986 in Florence, he shared his vision: “To sense how we humans are the inheritors of all this power and movement over space and time is at once awesome and humbling, but also exciting and inspiring. The residue of such feelings is the special sense of responsibility many scientists share: that all this shall not perish because of us” (Loye, 1987, p. 67). These words have since inspired my research. The following thoughts express my deep gratitude to David’s work and life, which are intrinsically related.

  • David Loye, Thank You for “Telling The New Story”

    • Authors: Ruth Richards
      Pages: 15 - 15
      Abstract: This is an account of a creative hero, whom we shall dearly miss; a scholar, activist, scientist, writer, and creative spirit, who heard the call and took the risks to offer a truth that was eclipsed for 100 years, i.e., “Darwin’s Lost Theory.” This heroism is part of true creativity, with courage to challenge the status quo. David Loye went further with social implications, and—along with colleagues including Riane Eisler—drew connections with the burgeoning interest in general systems theory, chaos theory, and complexity theory, as well as humanistic and positive psychology and creativity studies. As a social change agent, he helped found important organizations along the way. Today this new story is returning and expanding, in a hopefully continuing process of a valid, inclusive science

  • Commentaries on "Darwin’s Lost Theory: Bridge to a Better

    • Authors: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Ervin Laszlo, Ralph Abraham, Allan Combs, Alfonso Montuori, Mae Wan Ho, Stanley Salthe, Raymond Bradley, Humberto Maturana, Paul MacLean, Daniel Levine
      Pages: 18 - 18
      Abstract: Evolutionary systems theorist David Loye wrote many pioneering and engaging books throughout his lifetime; one of the best-known is Darwin’s Lost Theory: Bridge to a Better World (2007), a book that explores and overturns the longstanding notions of distinct Darwinism based upon a ‘survival of the fittest’ human mentality. Instead, Loye discovered and sought to bring to light Darwin’s long-ignored insights and a complete theory into the evolution of human morality as guided by moral action and love. In this article, colleagues of David Loye comment on this important book.
