Sq: Hi Platt,
Platt: Ideas you present that Pirsig says nothing about.
Sq: Pirsig does indeed imply contextualisation when he suggests that value
can replace causation. If one replaces causation with value the data remains
the same but the philosophical assumptions change.
This is stated with some clarity and force by Pirsig.
The whole issue of the MOQ being a 'Copernican' inversion implies
Platt: Ideas and values you and Pirsig agree on:
Metaphysics a menu, map
Openness to new experiences and ideas
Striving for excellence
The high value of freedom
Uncovering hidden assumptions
Sq: The last on this list may lead to recontextualisation.
I am not a full blown Rortyan, but Rorty is not without his value?
Bo does not go in for revising our language in the light of a new value
centred metaphysics; rather, Bo wishes to plug a hole that actually does not
exist after revision has taken place.
All the best,
