—“The dissident right wing is split on Aristotle and Plato. You being an Aristotelian and someone like Richard Spencer being a Platonist. Save the West with science and law for the Aristotelian vs Save the West with justification and idealism for the Platonist.”—Clown Baby @ClownBa73413423
Aristotelian < Platonist < Theologian.
The three grammars of cognitive development.
1. Empathic, Narrative, Theological > 2. Rational, Ideal, Platonist > 3. Empirical Measurement Aristotelian.
The brain evolves in that order. It’s not a mystery why we preserve the use all three. But why don’t other civ’s?
1. Feel – Drag (Comfort) – Empathic, Narrative, Theological
… 2. Reason – Sell (Explain) – Rational, Ideal, Platonist
… … 3. Empirical – Tell (Decide) – Empirical Measurement Aristotelian
