‘Systematics Recapitulate Historics’ -- Part 09: ‘Seldon’s Soliloquies Series’.

Systematic Dialectics Recapitulate Historical Dialectics -- Part 09:  ‘Seldon’s Soliloquies Series.

Dear Reader,

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.

This ninth such release in this new 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 9th installment, Seldon describes ways in which systematic-dialectical categorial progressions recapitulate historical-dialectical categorial progressions, as disclosed, with especial clarity, by the NQ dialectical-algebraic formulation and E.D. standard depiction of such categorial progressions.

Seldon --

In the case of our findings regarding dialectic, we are not here addressing how “ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny”, but rather how systematics recapitulates historics, and how ‘[relative-]synchronics recapitulates diachronics.”

“That is, we find, in typical cases of dialectic, as mapped by categorial progressions, that the ‘Systematic, ~Synchronic Dialectic’ of the present constitution of the typical Domain recapitulates, in ontological, categorial content, the ‘Historical, “Longitudinal”, ‘mega-Diachronic-Dialectical’ past process of constitution/genesis of that ‘‘‘Systematic ontological-categorial content’’’.”

Present, presented, nested, internal presences, of ... ‘metan-1-holons, inside ‘metan-holons, ..., typically recapitulate past historical-ontological successions of «aufheben» ‘metan-holonization’ ... processes, and also pre-capitulate’ the next stage of ‘Historical, Diachronic-Dialectic’ [cf. Marx, Grundrisse, Nicolaus, pp. 460-461] for that, given, typical Domain.
