The Unicist Research Institute is a global decentralized research boutique, specialized in complexity science, focused on the research of complex adaptive systems and their applications in the fields of social, institutional and individual behavior. It was founded in 1976 by Peter Belohlavek as an unincorporated association that was later transformed into a privately held company.[1][2]

With its holding in Delaware, USA and its Research Bunker in Adrogue, Argentina, The Unicist Research Institute has a business arm and an academic arm. Some of its core specialties are the development of cognitive systems, social behavior labs and educational programs for graduates.[3]


The framework of the complexity science research methodology used in The Unicist Research Institute is based on pragmatism, structuralism and functionalism.[4]

The four basic pillars of the applied research of The Unicist Research Institute were the ontogenesis of evolution, the anthropological invariables and their evolution, the functionality of the roots of human intelligence, and the double dialectical behavior.[5]

Social applications[edit]

The Future Research Laboratory of The Unicist Research Institute develops future scenarios as the core aspect for social and economic development plans. In this area, The Unicist Research Institute introduced evolutionary economics in the microeconomics driven development program for countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Spain, Ukraine and the United Kingdom based on its 40-year scenario building work in the field.[6][7][8][9][10]

Some of the main applied researches of the institute include:

  • The development of a Social Evolution Theory that was applied in political strategies. In 1987, the final application was done in the political campaign for the candidate who won the governors election in the San Juan Province, Argentina.[11]
  • The development of the Unicist Theory of Evolution that explained the dynamics of complex adaptive systems allowed developing multiple technologies to deal with adaptive behavior in social, economic and business entities.[12][13] In this field, the institute developed social, economic and political scenarios.[14]

The academic arm[edit]

The academic arm of The Unicist Research Institute uses the unicist reflection driven education approach for graduates, which is homologous to research-based learning programs, but focused on researching the root causes of complex adaptive environments.[15]

In the field of Business Education this approach is based on learning to manage the concepts and fundamentals that underlie business functions and define the root causes of the problems to manage the root drivers of the solutions.[16]

The business arm[edit]

Some of the main accomplishments of the institute include:

  • The Introduction of an epistemological method to validate quantitative research results in complex environments. The research made with American Express on travel expenses in 1988 was the first quantitative research with unicist epistemological validation.[17][18]
  • The refutation of the traditional Law of Demand developed at The Unicist Research Institute allowed developing technologies to manage and monitor market behavior.[19]
  • The development of predictors in complex market processes to foster growth strategies was included in the first applications of the personalized organization model applied to growth that was used at Diners Club in 1981 [20] and in an adaptive client centered management model in Renault that became a standard for business optimization in 1985.[21]
  • The development of a double dialectical logic to deal with the dynamics of adaptive systems led to the development of the unicist artificial intelligence model as a predictor for adaptive behavior.[22]
