The Quality of Reason…

From Descartes to Peirce

“Reality is what we take to be true. What we take to be true is what we believe… What we believe determines what we take to be true[1]”…

- David Bohm

From Descartes [2] to Peirce [3]

From Cartesian Dualism to Integration

Reason is a Quality[4] — Perception is Action

We are interdependent and interconnected

Reason is finding harmony — a Symmetry — between our Beliefs and the complex Systems we Inhabit

The integration of our Mental World through abstraction with our experience, actions and agency in an emergent Material World

A shift from a Non Fallibilism to Fallibilism Logic & Reason that embraces – Abduction – Induction – and – Deduction – and – the Principle of Symmetry – recognising the emergent complex nature of our Material World

Friction, Reflexivity, Assimilation , Modification, Action and Open Inquiry are how we Learn how to Learn

Reason is an embodied abstraction

From a Classical World of Reason – Bayesian Inference – or – Frequentists – Mental Structures – Mental World – to – a Quantum World of Reason – Embodied Abstraction – Integrated Structures – Mental World + Material World – Beyond Cartesian Dualism to Integration

“A quality is something capable of being completely embodied. A law never can be embodied in its character as a law except by determining a habit. A quality is how something may or might have been. A law is how an endless future must continue to be”…

- Charles Sanders Peirce

“The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence”…

- Rabindranath Tagore
