Triadic Philosophy - Will Good Joy

Access other Triadic Philosophy sections at Pinterest
Triadic Philosophy involves categorization
and consolidation
Terms like "will" rise directly by inference
from the root First term which is Reality
The root Triad of this philosophy is
Reality Ethics Aesthetics
The triad above
is Will Good Joy
Good and Joy 
rise respectively from Ethics and Aesthetics
(Will is an ontological element of  Reality
It is the source of
both freedom and responsibility
It' implies impulse drive destiny and history)

(Will is capable of fathoming the good
 but more often than not
the good is a source of confusion and conflict
until brought into 
relationship with will
From the ensuing struggle
an option for action rises)

(In a mindful existence 
in which Will and Good are
conscious the options that
give rise to the Aesthetic term Joy
are those which signal a 
a unity between ones experience
of pleasure and wholeness
in unity with others and the world)

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat.

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 …
