RE: [GTh] The Square of Opposition
- [Tom Saunders Wrote:] in part
�If you want to check a concept for truth and logic, against the
powers of Aphorist, Sophic, Scinetist, Truth and Logic, put any of the
catagories in the middle. That is part of the idea. It is to show the
reflective value of the paradigm, and can bring the aspect of dualism, out
of the linear perspective. But this model can only be constructed if you
first use truth and logic together in the "X-box." Then you can follow
the polarity in the geometric model to expand it to the Truth, Logic,
Sophic, Aphorist, Scientist.�

�These are only a few of the questions that indicate that this is almost
wholly obscurantist nonsense resulting from what is obviously an utter
failure to think clearly.�
These days I seem to have barely enough time to read the communiqu�s sent to
this list, much less to be able to enter into any of the discussions.
Nevertheless, I�m compelled to agree in the strongest possible way with Mike
�s remarks about the utter gibberish that has recently emanated from Tom.
Not only is Tom�s writing mostly incomprehensible, it does virtually nothing
to stimulate lucid and cogent discussions about the Gospel of Thomas within
the context of reasonably competent and conscientious scholarship.
There has been a long and conspicuous absence of correspondence to the list
from responsible commentators. This is, it seems to me, not surprising given
Tom�s frequent and persistent ramblings about topics that are irrelevant at
best, and just plain incoherent at worst.
I suggest that enough is enough, Tom.
