[Xmca-l] Re: 4 experiencing fans



Robert,
let's focus in on this *just*
 Just one of those labelling *intuitions* that arrived out of the blue.  My
question is if it arrived *within* the blue?

Andy mentioned the label *living experience*.

I want to offer Vincent Colipietro's 1st order voice [genesis or natality]
exploring this theme of *just intuitions OF*
He is marking an aspect of Peirce's notion of *living experience* [which
has a SEMBLANCE to Vygotsky's notions]

"

But it is other facets of Peirce’s preoccupation with growth that I want

to consider here. While *methodeutic *captures Peirce’s focal preoccupation

with offering a normative account of objective inquiry, in the context of an

evolutionary cosmology, speculative rhetoric conveys the still largely
unrealized

potential of his philosophical imagination, inasmuch as this imagination

is evident in his vision of a thoroughly generalized conception of

rhetoric (see, however, Bird, 1959; also Santaella, 1999, esp. pp. 388–90).

According to Peirce, “the woof and warp of all thought and all research is

symbols, and the life of thought and science is the life inherent in
symbols”

(CP 2.220). Symbols cannot function apart from other modes of signification,

so a detailed, nuanced, and comprehensive account of the various

modes of signification is required for doing justice to scientific
investigation

(or objective inquiry). However, the execution of this task requires

unblinking recognition of the vital character, the irrepressible life,
inherent

in our experimental practices (see, e.g., CP 1.234–5). But, from Peirce’s

perspective, the very forms of living beings grow (not just those organisms

themselves): by complex processes involving chance and catastrophe,

compulsive attractions and alluring radiance, fierce struggle and cherishing

concern, the forms of life themselves evolve."

Robert, what Colipietro is saying expressing his 1st order voice is the
need for unblinking recognition of the vital character [anima character]
the irrepressible life INHERENT [in other words *within*] our experimental
practices.

I do not know if Vasilyuk's notions have a family *semblance* to this
exploration of "living experience" within a *space of play* [situations]
but I speculate it does.
