‘Dialectical Categorial Progressions’.
-- Part 03: The Seldonian Revolution Series.
It is my pleasure, and my honor, as an elected member of the Foundation Encyclopedia Dialectica [F.E.D.] General Council, 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 third 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 3rd installment, Seldon addresses the ‘contental’ -- as opposed to the formal – nature of dialectical categorial progression theory-presentations.
“A dialectical categorial progression presents -- and ‘‘‘analyzes’’’, then ‘‘‘synthesizes’’’ -- the content of its target Domain, i.e., presents a theory of the systematic or holistic unity of the content of the ontological Domain that it addresses, including as to how the distinct elements of that content inter-relate/inter-connect.”
“Once the general constituent categories of an ontological Domain are articulated into, and evoked in, their ‘inter-mutual’ distinctness – into their «differentia specifica» – at the extremum of their moment of analysis, a ‘qualitative superposition’ arises in the mind of their analyst/synthesist, via the beholding of their ‘concurrent irreducible co-representation’, or «asumbletoi» ‘‘‘sum’’’-ation.”
“This ‘qualitative superposition’ effects an enriched, higher, more-determinate, more-systematic ‘re-synthesis’ of the knowledge of that Domain in the mind of its analyst/synthesist, which reaches back, but also reaches beyond, to ‘univocality’ again, but at a higher, more advanced level of unified comprehension vis-à-vis the more abstract/omissive/implicit perception/-cognition of the Domain that existed in the analyst’s/synthesist’s mind when the dialectical categorial analysis first began.”
“…Dialectical categorial analysis tells you what the Domain of your concern is ‘‘‘made of’’’ --‘speci-fically’, ontologically, categorially…”
“…The NQ dialectical method provides a generic ‘thought-wave-guide’, an «organon», a reliable if not infallible recipe – an ‘algebraic algorithmic heuristic’ -- that helps its users to produce such dialectical ontological Domain analyses/syntheses.”
“…‘Dialectical-Categorial Decomposition’ of your Domain of interest leads you to a higher ‘re-composition’ and ‘re-comprehension’/‘re-cognition’ of that Domain.”
