Aristotelian Vs Non-Aristotelian Orientations

May 27, 2013

The new Non-Aristotelian orientations differ as much from the Aristotelian as the  Aristotelian differ from the Primitive types of evaluations

Old Aristotelian Orientations (350 b.c.) New General Semantic Non-Aristotelian Orientations (1941 a.c.)
1. Subject-Predicate methods 1. Relational methods
2. Symmetrical relations, inadequate for proper evaluation 2. Asymmetrical relations, indispensable for proper evaluations
3. Static ‘objective’, ‘permanent’ ‘substance’, ‘solid matter’, etc. orientations 3. Dynamic, ever-changing, etc, electronic process orientations
4. ‘Properties’ of ‘substance’, ‘attributes’, ‘qualities’ of ‘matter’ etc. 4. Relative invariance of function, dynamic structure, etc.
5. Two-valued, ‘either-or’, inflexible dogmatic orientations 5. Infinite- valued flexibility, degree orientations
6, Static, finalistic ‘allness‘; finite number of characteristics attitudes 6. Dynamic non-allness; infinite number of characteristics attitudes
7. By Definition ‘absolute sameness in “all” respects(“identity”) 7. Empirical non-identity, a natural law as universal as gravitation
8. Two-valued, ‘certainty’, etc. 8. Infinite- valued maximum probalility
9. Static absolutism 9. Dynamic relativism
10. By definition ‘absolute emptiness’, ‘absolute space’, etc. 10. Empirical fullness of electro-magnetic, gravitational, etc., fields
11. By definition ‘absolute time’ 11. Empirical space-time
12. By definition ‘absolute simultaneity’ 12. Empirical relative simultaneity
13. Additive (‘and’), linear 13. Functional, non-linear
14. (3+1) – dimensional ‘space’ and ‘time’ 14. 4 – dimensional space-time
15. Euclidéan system 15. Non-Euclidéan system
16. Newtonian system 16. Einsteinian or non-Newtonian system
17. ‘Sense’ data predominant 17. Inferential data as fundamental new factors
18. Macroscopic and microscopic levels 18. Sub-microscopic levels
19. Methods of magic (self-deception) 19. Elimination of self-deception
20. Fibers, neurons, etc. ‘objective’ orientations 20. Electro colloidal process orientations
21. Eventual ‘organism-as-a-whole’, disregarding environmental factors 21. Organism-as-a-whole-in-environments, introducing new unavoidable factors
22. Elementalistic, structure of language and orientations 22. Non-elementalistic, structure of language and orientations
23. ‘Emotion’ and ‘intellect’, etc. 23. Semantic reactions
24. ‘Body’ and ‘mind’, etc. 24. Psychosomatic integration
25. Tendency to split ‘personality’ 25. Integrating ‘personality’
26. Handicapping nervous integration 26. Producing automatically thalami-cortical integration
27. Intensional structure of language and orientations, perpetuating: 27. Extensional structure of language and orientations, producing:
28. Identifications in value:a) of electronic, electro-colloidal, etc sages of processeswith the silent, non-verbal, ‘objective’ levels

b) of individuals, situations, etc.

c) of orders of abstractions

28. Consciousness of abstractinga), b), & c) } Extensional devices
29. Pathologically reversed order of evaluation 29. Natural order of evaluation
30. Conducive to neuro-semantic tension 30. Producing neuro-semantic relaxation
31. Injurious psychosomatic effects 31. Beneficial psychosomatic effects
32. Influencing toward un-sanity 32. Influencing toward sanity
33. ‘Action at a distance’, metaphysical false-to-fact orientations 33. ‘Action by contact’, neuro-physiological scientific orientations
34. Two-valued causality and so consequent ‘final causation’ 34. Infinite-valued causality, where the ‘final causation’ hypothesis is not needed
35. Mathematics derived from ‘logic’, with resulting verbal paradoxes 35. ‘Logic’ derived from mathematics, with eliminating verbal paradoxes
36. Avoiding empirical paradoxes 36. Facing empirical paradoxes
37. Adjusting empirical facts to verbal patterns 37. Adjusting verbal patterns to empirical facts
38. Primitive static ‘science’ (religion) 38. Modern dynamic ‘religions’ (science)
39. Anthropomorphic 39. Non-anthropomorphic
40. Non-similarity of structure between language and facts 40. Similarity of structure between language and facts
41. Improper evaluations, resulting in: 41. Proper evaluations, tested by:
42. Impaired predictability 42. Maximum predictability
43. Disregard 43. Undefined terms
44. Disregard 44. Self-reflexiveness of language
45. Disregard 45. Multiordinal mechanisms and terms
46. Disregard 46. Over/Under-defined character of terms
47. Disregard 47. Inferential terms as terms
48. Disregard 48. Neuro-linguistic environments considered as environment
49. Disregard 49. Neuro-semantic environments considered as environment
50. Disregard 50. Decisive, automatic effect of the structure of language on types of evaluation, and so neuro-semantic reactions
51. Elementalistic, verbal, intensional ‘meaning’, or still worse ‘meaning of meaning’ 51. Non-elementalistic, extensional, by fact evaluations
52. Antiquated 52. Modern (post 1941)
The new Non-Aristotelian orientations differ as much from the Aristotelian……….. ……as the Aristotelian differ from the Primitive types of evaluations
