‘Dialectic: Users’ Manual’, Edition 0., new book by Karl Seldon, just published by F.E.D. Press.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dialectic: Users Manual’, Edition 0., new book by Karl Seldon, just published by F.E.D. Press.



 

 

 

 

 

Dear Reader,

 

 

 

The new book by F.E.D. co-founder Karl Seldon, entitled --

 

Dialectic: Users Manual.

 

-- has just been published by the F.E.D. Press.

 

To find out how to obtain your copy of this book from out of the small production run of its first edition, contact webmaster@dialectics.org .

 

Descriptions of this book from the inside back flap of its “dust cover jacket” --

(1) “In all of the 2,495 years since Heraclitus, during which “dialectic” has formed an extant meme in the ‘human phenome’, never before has there arisen an algorithmic -- indeed, a mathematical -- formulation of dialectic, that, by virtue of being algorithmic, or ‘recipe-al’, is thereby also learnable, potentially, not just by the ‘auto-didacticism’ of a handful of historic geniuses, but by humanity at large, and as a whole.”

 

(2) “This text, which sets forth a universal algorithmic-heuristic method, and model, of dialectic, can, thereby, help conduct its learners from the outermost reaches of the “formal operations” phase of adult cognitive development, to its successor phase -- to the “dialectical operations” phase.”

 

(3) “A key feature of this text, for me, is the way in which it rebalances the valuation of the quantitative versus the qualitative, and helps to redress, and to heal, the bias toward the “purely” quantitative that characterizes modernity, and that reflects the uttermost root of capitalism in the unconscious paradigm of the exchange-value: the equation of the qualitatively different apparently by “pure” quantity alone.  This text does this healing work partly by presenting the antidote of an arithmetic of “pure” qualities.  However, its whole thrust is toward both an everyday and an ideographical language, and a new ‘human phenome’, that writes, and speaks, and thinks, a complex unity of quantitative and qualitative, a ‘quanto-qualitative’ and, equally, a ‘qualo-quantitative’ universal language, and universal algebra, founded in the «aufheben» operation, and, thus, a dialectical «characteristica universalis».”

‘A Mathematics of Meaning’ -- Part 08: ‘The Seldon Files’ Series.

 

 

A Mathematics of Meaning-- Part 08:  The Seldon Files 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.

 

The eighth 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 8th installment, Seldon describes a key distinction between the F.E.D. first arithmetic for dialectic, and the ‘‘‘first standard arithmetic’’’, that of theNatural Numbers, N, from which the F.E.D. first arithmetic for dialecticis born.  

 

This key distinction continues to apply to the other standard axioms-systems of arithmetics, e.g., those of the W, Z, Q, R, C, and H number-systems. 

 

Those other standard arithmetics are also spawned from the N arithmetic, but in a different direction of its ideo-ontological self-propagation.  

 

The latter direction is ‘‘‘orthogonal’’’ to that direction of its ideo-ontological self-propagation that produces the meta-system’ -- or dialectical categorial progression «qua» dialectical axioms-systems progression -- of the F.E.D. arithmetics for dialectic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seldon --

 

The NQ algebra is an algebra of/for meaning and of/for meanings. 

 

 

Its algebraic unknowns, its symbols to be solved for, are solved by discovering/finding their meaning. 

 

 

That meaning is not restricted to the narrow confines of abstract numbers, of quantities without qualification, of the unqualified quantifiers that the standard algebras solve-for. 

 

 

The NQ algebra’s meanings are about qualities -- albeit qualities without quantification -- about unquantifiable qualifiers. 

 

 

It thus takes a second step toward concreteness, toward an ideographical language able to express qualifiers that are also quantified, quantifiers that are also qualified, quantified qualifiers that are also qualified quantifiers.

‘The Seldonian Dialectic’ -- 20 Images.

 

 

 

 

The Seldonian Dialectic -- 20 Images.

 

 

Dear Reader,

 

 

 

The twenty text-images posted below offer you a summary of the essence of what we call Seldonian Dialectics.

 

We call this historic breakthrough within the long history of dialectic The Seldonian Dialectic. 

 

Seldon himself would prefer that we not apply his name to this breakthrough, as he does not want implied any “arrogant” claim that this achievement is his alone, and would prefer that we name it simply The F.E.D. Dialectic.

 

However, on this one matter, Seldon has been outvoted in the F.E.D. General Council.
