dedicated nearly ten years of intense clinical practice
(ten to twelve sessions each day) to cure the most diversified
pathologies, without any pharmaceutical support. Within

in the analysis, intervention and solution of hundreds

This clinical practice built the methodological foundations
of Ontopsychological science, which also constitutes
a form of philosophy. In several occasions Antonio Meneghetti
affirmed that he never thought to invent a new science.
It was the acknowledgment to have found the solution
to several men’s problems that led him to the
conception of it.
In the 1980s, Meneghetti formalized his basic idea to
distinguish between “ontic” and memetic
information. He identified and described the effect
of the monitor of deflection and distinguished it from
the characteristics of the unity of action that distinguishes
the man acting in conformity to his project of nature:
the ontic In Sé.
Since the early 1990s, he has been developing the sociological
implications of his thought, stressing the important
relation between the individual and society and giving
priority (according with his initial ambition) the psychology
of self-fulfillment and creativity: man as a leader
in the microcosm and in the macrocosm.
He prioritises all fields of application where man can
evolve: business, art, politics, high finance, fashion,
music and the processes of the psychical activity.
He is the founder and main proponent of the artistic
movement of OntoArte. Artist, pianist and concert performer,
he is a member of the Academic Senate of the International
Academy of Modern Art.

vision, especially when it is operated by healthy individuals
who express their leadership by serving the progressive
needs of man and society.
Today he is a worldwide recognized expert in leadership.
His ideas and teaching stimulate advanced applications
in the world of science, art, entrepreneurship, politics
Above all, he has clarified “the intuitive logic”
that brings the simple exactness in corporate management.
