In the course of history, both scientific research, as well as economic studies on sustainable development and environmental protection, in particular, have been, are and will be influenced by thought and action of rational-social animal human, suggested by the concepts of homo oeconomicus and zoon politikon. Briefly speaking, the two hypostases of human individual specialization reveals the continuously never-ending movement between specialization and multidisciplinary, modal logic versus entropic-psychological principles, hypothesis versus experiment, optimality versus sustainability of economic, social and natural systems. Taking into account the principles of abstraction, generalization and anticipation, process of thinking-based on an ordered system of operations for collecting, processing, interpretation and use of the information, in an algorithmic or heuristic way-could manifest as an intelligent cognitive ability in the development of a project by illustrating the human capacity to choose the optimal alternative from the set of initially possible, given the risks and opportunities.
