Excerpt: In this paper, we will discuss the questions whether a unified concept of the world is possible and whether ontological gaps exist in the world that would make such a view impossible. We will discuss the problems mainly with respect to biology, because biological systems are systems which, on the one hand, are strongly bound to physics and chemistry, but at the same time extend into the domains of psychology and social sciences, at least with respect to human beings. Thus, biology is central to any discussion about the unity of the world.
