The place of logic, mathematics and science in Triadic Philosophy

The place where we are within the continuity that is our reality 
creates conditions that will enable enough of a move 
from binary to triadic thinking 
to save us from the worst consequences of rearguard effort to defeat it 
The enabling conditions are the fruits of triadic thinking 
the rewards of an embrace of Triadic Philosophy 
The simple yet foundational triad of this philosophy 
Reality Ethics Aesthetics 
invites the thinker to build triads on the basis of these terms 
Reality the First 
Ethics the Second 
Aesthetics the Third 
The perspective of this pragmaticist approach 
enables a revolutionary categorical distinction in which key processes 
like logic mathematics and science 
are considered as means rising up 
in the ontological realm 
 to serve the pragmaticist project 
which is to expand the scope and depth of Triadic Philosophy 
The ontological root value non-idolatry 
serves to place logic mathematics and science 
within the realm of our finite real not above it 
and to invite each to parse their responsibilities 
in terms of the triadic reality in which we now live

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …
