New Philosophy of Accidents and Their Effects Is Launched

WESTPORT, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 21, 2006 -- Effectology® is a philosophy conceived by Ion Grumeza, a historian and independent scholar. It examines the dynamic of accidents and their effects, with a focus on action, counter-action, and re-action in nature, religion, human relations, business, health, war, and other areas of human activities and universal changes. This dynamic is for the most part overlooked by traditional philosophy, science and other disciplines, probably because accidents cannot be predicted. Their instant impact escapes traditional rules of organized studies, and their effects often re-direct us in completely unexpected directions. Here are a few examples:

--  Medieval alchemists' search for gold produced no gold but led to the
    accidental discovery of other chemicals and gave us today's table of
    elements.
    
--  Louis VII's refusal to shave the beard he grew during the Crusade led
    to a divorce from his queen who subsequently married Henry of Anjou. In
    claiming Eleanor's dowry, Henry declared a war on France that would extend
    through the next 300 years.
    
This new philosophical concept is presented on the website: www.effectology.org.

The creator of Effectology is Ion Grumeza, a Romanian-born historian and independent scholar. Effectology is the culmination of a lifetime of studying philosophy, religion, history, and science.
