Seldon's Sayings Series, #10. Our «Arché» Concept.








Dear Readers,



It is my pleasure to share with you, from time to time, selections from the seminal sayings, and writings, shared by him among we of F.E.D., by our co-founder, Karl Seldon [main site:  www.dialectics.org ].   

Standard E.D. edits, including 'ordinal illumination', have been applied to this quotation.



Such is the following --






...What we call the «arché» category is the starting category of a dialectical categorial progression.”  

It is so whether that dialectical progression is a synchronic or a diachronic one; whether it is a systematic, a historical, a meta-systematic, or a ‘‘‘psychohistorical’’’ dialectical categorial progression.”

“The «arché» category is the beginning category, the starting point, the point of departure, the cell-form, the seed form, the root, the most archaic, the first and ultimate ancestor category -- the oldest and/or the simplest, most abstract category -- of its Domain, of its Domain’s earliest emergence or irruption, and is also the ever-present/deep-past origin and governing source of that Domain, and of the categorial progression that models that Domain.”

“The «arché» category is the primary, first-most, initiating ‘‘‘thesis’’’ category of that dialectic -- of the dialectic of that Domain.”

“The «arché» category is the immediate dialectical premise, ground, or foundation, of the given Domain.” 

It must, if the dialectical categorial progression presentation/reconstruction/analysis of that Domain is even to begin, be granted; it must be ‘‘‘given’’’, it must be assumed, but can itself be explained, justified, or ‘‘‘proven’’’ only at the end of its Domain’s presentation, only at and/or after the presentation of the final category of that categorial progression presentation, if at all.”

“The «arché» category, and its «monads», are reproduced, and hence remain present, throughout the epochs, tD, or throughout the steps, sD, of the dialectical categorial progression, both externally and internally, within all of its subsequent categories, its subsequent ‘[ideo-]meta-lineage’, its ‘[ideo-]meta-progeny’ and its ‘[ideo-]meta-genealogy’.  


Those «arché-monads» are categorially and monadically ‘‘‘presupposed’’’, ‘‘‘contained’’’, ‘‘‘conserved’’’, as well as ‘qualo-fractally elevated, to ever-increasing degree of elevation, within each subsequent category, and within each «monad» of that category, in that dialectical categorial progression. ...

Miguel
