FOR YOUR USE: Massive New Online Archive of Critiques of Capitalism's Flaws.








Dear Readers,


A new and massive on-line library of texts, images, audios, & videos, documenting the critique of capitalist society, has recently been made available for your use.  The URL for this e-library is --

http://lust-for-life.org/Lust-For-Life/LFLL/LFLL.htm

-- and I hope that you will deeply enjoy exploring, and putting to good use, the vast wealth of material available there -- much of it no longer available anywhere else!

Karl Seldon's Brief Introduction to Dialectics.








Dear Readers,


A couple of our site guests recently challenged F.E.D. to write up, in just 10 main-body pages -- plus additional pages allowed for an abstract, a table of contents, and some partly pictorial appendices -- a general introduction to the "algebraic algorithmic heuristic universal dialectical method" that F.E.D. is developing, but allowing ourselves only up to three of our neologisms in the main body of that text.

Karl Seldon agreed to take on this challenge.  


The result has just been posted to the main F.E.D. website, to its Primer Page --

http://www.dialectics.org/dialectics/Welcome.html

http://www.dialectics.org/dialectics/Primer.html


http://www.dialectics.org/dialectics/Primer_files/Karl_H._Seldon_,_for_F.E.D._,_v.2.0_,_Introduction_to_'Contra-Boolean'_Thinking_,_21MAY2016.pdf


Seldon actually used only two special terms in this essay, only one of which was one of our neologisms:  <<aufheben>>, & [variations on the term] 'meta-unit-ization'.  

Even the words "dialectic", "dialectics", and "dialectical" are nowhere to be found in the main body of this text, and only once elsewhere in that text, in the title of a work referenced in its end notes.

I think that this essay may be the most accessible introduction to the first algebra for dialectical logic that
F.E.D. has ever yet produced!

However, what I think is not the real test.  


I would like to know how accessible this essay is from your perspective, and I ask you to please comment, here, to this blog-entry, to that effect.


Regards,

Miguel

A Dialogue on F.E.D. Dialectics, Exchange #3.








Dear Readers,



I have just been informed  the PDF file of the transcript of Exchange #3, in the recent series of 'Dialogues on F.E.D. Dialectics', has been posted to the www.dialectics.org website, at --
http://www.dialectics.org/dialectics/Aoristoss_Blog/Entries/2016/3/28_Dialogue_on_F.E.D._Dialectics%2C_Exchange_3..html.

http://www.dialectics.org/dialectics/Aoristoss_Blog/Entries/2016/3/28_Dialogue_on_F.E.D._Dialectics,_Exchange_3._files/E3,I1_Q3_%26_I2_R3,_dialogue_on_F.E.D._Dialectics,_29JUN2015_,_enhanced_08APR2016..pdf


The set of questions for this third exchange form, in my opinion, one of the richest sets of questions that F.E.D. has ever had the privilege to address in its entire history!


Links to the earlier two exchanges of this dialogue are as follows --
