Triadic Philosophy - Freedom and Will Account for The Irreducible Dignity All Persons Possess

Foundational Triad
Reality Ethics Aesthetics

This Triad
Freedom Temptation Decision

Each triad  (of an infinite number)
in this philosophy
refers to the foundation
In  other words

from interaction of Reality and Ethics
and a resolution in the active realm
 under the sign (or word) of Aesthetics
THE TRIAD ABOVE
Image one 

First
Freedom
(Freedom and will are part of the Reality
which rises around us. The essence of our dignity
lies in the presence of these within 
the penumbra .)

Second 
Temptation
(Temptation is the experience of  Freedom
in tension with signs of warning
presumptions of danger
impulses to exceed limits
real or imagined.)

Third
Decision
(We own
our response and affirm it as our choice.
The key ethical imperative
 is that our choice possess the ends to which Aesthetics leads -
beauty truth joy peace.)
