The Quality of Reason…

From Descartes to Peirce

- 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

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
