Triadic Philosophy - Confronting the pathos of academic specialization

World in Limbo

Academic specialization is one of the 
main barriers to appreciating 
the revolution Peirce and Nietzsche launched 
which is now in progress. 
The revolution  is the move from binary to triadic thinking. 
The ethical  and aesthetic elements in Triadic Philosophy 
are my inference and effort 
to build past Nietzsche and Peirce. 
And Kierkegaard as well.  
All pointed to the ethical and the aesthetic 
as if they could sense what Derrida 
and many others would soon come to realize.  
Without the unprecedented, 
that is to say  ’without Triadic Philosophy’, 
we are simply condemned to more of the same, 
to the result of philosophies 
drenched in nominalism and 
dripping with the detritus of 
a world doomed to condone 
and fall into violence. 
Academic specialization  
in its present traditional form 
is a pathetic idolatry, 
a hallowing of empty competition 
too onerous to be credited 
with saving grace.

Triadic Philosophy What Is Required of a Philosophy

Unknown Cosmos

+

A philosophy needs to start by saying what is 
universal and true,
what things apply to all.
The most damaging word in philosophy is of
A philosophy of this or of that
wrenches philosophy from an obligation
to say what is universal in every situation.
The result is a distortion of reality.
The traditional name for such distortion is idolatry
In Triadic Philosophy, 
Reality is the foundation. 
It is universal.
 Its companions are Ethics and Aesthetics.
All enterprises are in the pale of reality.
They do not transcend it.
They are finite, open to alteration, 
subject to continuity.
Logic, mathematics, science, theology, psychology
all fall under Reality, not beyond it.
All are subject to the universal sway of
Ethics and Aesthetics.

The truth of Triadic Philosophy
rests in its capacity to establish 
its premises to the point that they are 
acknowledged to be accurate and therefore
consistent with truth and beauty
because they properly represent Reality
