HOLISTIC APPROACH

Holistic is that belonging to holism, a trend or current that analyzes events from the point of view of the multiple interactions that characterize them.

Holism assumes that all the properties of a system cannot be determined or explained as the sum of its components.

Holism (from the Greek ὅλος [holos], everything, whole, total) is the idea that all the properties of a given system (for example, biological, chemical, social, economic, mental or linguistic) cannot be determined or explained by the parties that compose them by themselves. The system as a whole determines how the parties behave. As an adjective, holistic means a conception based on total integration in front of a concept or situation.

The general principle of holism was summarized succinctly by Aristotle in his metaphysics. «The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.»

It can be defined as the treatment of a topic that involves all its components, with their invisible relationships through the five senses, but also evident. It is used as a third way or a new approach to a problem. Holism emphasizes the importance of the whole, which is greater than the sum of the parts (property of synergy), and gives importance to the interdependence of these.
