The relationships between the human being, the world and knowledge have perpetually diversified; just because of this, we need a holistic view in order to understand this complex situation or the complex net of relations. İt is a well known fact that scientific knowledge examines partially the facts; but philosophical knowledge or philosophical discourse, as knowledge, can provide a significant integrity between the different sorts of knowledge concerning beings. For exampie, in the ancient period, the philosophical discourse generally was oriented to the physical objects vvhich exist in the external world. This way of thinking definitely overlaps with the ontological approach. İt is the first step or phase for philosophical thinking and philosophical knowledge; but in the second phase, this knowledge is oriented to the human being, as a starting point, to world and to knowledge. During the first step, beings are examined as beings perse, to use the Aristotelian expression; but the second phase puts forward the idea that the human being is a meeting- pointfor every knowledge and anthropontology summarizes these three words, i.e., the human being, the world and knowledge.
