The social mission of science may be succinctly defined as a well-justified knowledge whose main applications are supposed to enhance the protection of all common goods. The goal of this paper is the question why the methodology, language and methods of deeply esoteric innovative agonology are supposed to be an optimum guide in interdisciplinary research from micro- to macro scale. The method of this paper is based on the collection of three short academic essays. Unfortunately, the languages of praxeology and agonology are used by few people, although they describe in a simple way the three categories of man’s capacities: collaboration (positive cooperation), necessary defence, as a part of struggle (negative cooperation); concluding compromises. Innovative agonology is a short name for prophylactic and therapeutic agonology, i.e. evidence-based science about struggle. It is well known that the possibilities of even the latest technology in countering many pathologies and real threats to health or life are limited. Paradoxically, some of these threats are generated by technology (an example of negative effects of a commonly available smartphone). The alternative is education, supported with modern technology but one which only fosters verbal communication, satisfaction with learning proper motor responses in dangerous situations, or sports which teach respect for rules and own or the opponent’s body.
Key words: compromises, positive cooperation, praxeology, negative cooperation, violence
