“Ontophronesis” is introduced as the natural next step following monism as a basic assumption. Ontophronesis is based on the principle of The causal inequality, the principle that ontologically homogeneous domains do not cause ontologically homogeneous domains. If we only allow ontologically homogeneous domains we have monism. If we also allow ontologically heterogeneous domains, we have ontophronesis. Ontophronesis is a second order ontology in the meaning that it allows more than one ontology, just as monism.
Since monism is more general than physicalism yet allowing it, and since ontophronesis is more general than monism, yet allowing it, ontophronesis should replace monism as the standard basic assumption in relation to science.
