Picked up from another list and possibly of interest and/or critique:

The emphasis in this article is on the realisation that dialectical
and analytical logics seem to be hard-coded into the species and that
the dialectical perspective reflects the mind's way of dealing with
complex mental states that indicate apparent contradictions such that
to resolve these 'contradictions' the mind recruits the brain's way
of dealing with sensory paradox. The consequence of this recruitment
by the mind of a brain function is the demonstration that all complex
states are irreducible to simple descriptions reflecting EITHER/OR
distinctions and all of these complex states are described through
the use of oscillations between the major distinctions that make-up
the complexity. As such, reality is always implied.
