‘‘‘Negotiation Dialectics’’’ -- Part 11: ‘Seldonisms’ Series.
It is my pleasure, and my honor, as an officer of the Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.] Office of Public Liaison, and as a voting member of F.E.D., to share, with you, from time to time, as they are approved for public release by the F.E.D. General Council, key excerpts from the internal writings, and from the internal sayings, of our co-founder, Karl Seldon.
The eleventh release in this new such series is posted below [Some E.D. standard edits have been applied, in the version presented below, by the editors of the F.E.D. Special Council for the Encyclopedia, to the direct transcript of our co-founder’s discourse].
In this 11th installment, Seldon addresses the dialectical character of negotiation, and our expected role of negotiation in our predicted successor system to the capitalist system.
“Negotiation is the art of dialectical synthesis in human-social affairs.”
“Successful negotiation is dialectics in practice; the very practice of the theory of dialectics.”
“As we move into a society of political- ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY, based upon generalized equity, we move into an even more negotiations-intensive form of society than ever before.”
“Authoritarian coercion and violence in social relations must give way to negotiations ongoing at every level and scale, in every dimension, of human social existence.”
