Triadic Philosophy Commentary - Peirce's Triads and My Point of View

Meta

 I see Peirce's triads as prior to the achievement
of a universal philosophy. That is one reason I do not presume to speak "for" anyone but myself while confessing great indebtedness. I see little hope for philosophy unless it gets from Reality to our active reality. And if along the way it has essentially relegated ethics and aesthetics to the stratosphere, while arriving at a notion that the end point is metaphysics, then I also object. I am coming to think of CSP's phenomenology as a sort of meta that would be essential to a coterie of the informed perhaps, but is useless without coming down somewhere for every person. Maybe I will end up Piercifying James! Or going beyond.  We live in a binary world and culture due to our dominant, inherited philosophies and I feel making it triadic is the key to moving beyond lethal conflict.  That is motivation enough and time is is for individuals finite.

Triadic Philosophy Commentary - The only way to "grade" reality I know

Make The Grade

The only way to "grade" reality I know 
is not by presuming to rate what is real 
in a semiotic process 
but by the attainment of ethical 
and aesthetic authenticity 
in the action that ensues. 
It is in action and actuality that 
Reality (the First) can be evaluated 
in terms of its attainments. 
In terms of more or  less ethical values
leading to more or less 
aesthetic results.
