Dialectical ambiguities

November 9th, 2014 · No Comments


We have put up a lot criticism of dialectical materialism and of dialectic. This is important, but there is nothing to say that we can’t actually refound, or, indeed, found the subject for the first time.
Looking at Hegel in terms of the macro/eonic effect we see that it is rare to find completely wrong innovations in the master sequence.

The paradox is not hard to resolve: Hegel borrowed occult/\aristotelian mishmash and began to experiment with it. The problem is to confuse triads and dyads, apparently. The dyad of freedom and determinism is a perfectly good ‘dialectical’ pair, and it seems that nature actually might compute this dyad. Look at the eonic effect in WHEE with its take on Kant’s challenge: the first paragraph in his famous essay puts ‘free will’ and a system of mechanics into conjunction in some way. And the demonstration of a triadic resolution of a dialectical pair I couldn’t disallow out of hand. But noone has really shown how the dialectic could generate triadic resolutions of paired concepts. What concept matches free will and causality?

Mathematical logic ought to clarify the questions and confusions of dialectics so that we can get clear of the ‘algae bloom’ of dialectical confusion in the wake of Hegel.
