[Xmca-l] Re: Habits (Greek: ethos)

There are concurrent conversations ongoing on the topics of semiosis (Peirce) and virtues (Aristotle).

Paul Kockleman has written an article juxtaposing Aristotle, Marx, Heiddeger, and Peirce and their 4 distinct theories of (things).
If interested I can post to this site

Kockleman believes Aristotle’s term (cause) that has been paired with its compliment (effect) should probably be better expressed in terms of (sources) and (destinations) as well as (paths).
Thereby we will in our questioning avoid any mechanistic assumptions.

I will add the term (ways) in order to acknowledge the wisdom of Confucius and the Dao. This adding way to compliment path is a way to express  gratitude (in the way of virtue) to other wisdom traditions and remind myself of James Ma’s (path) through Confucius. 
Jame’s opening remark in his  paper on Confucius as axiomatic resonated as his path and destination.
So ..

Returning to Paul Kockleman and moving through and within Paul Kockleman’s exploration  of *value* in Aristotle and Marx and Heiddeger and Peirce.

My way of  expressing gratitude for this forum where it is possible for locating sources as  dialogical forms of becoming other through identity (and identity through other).

This includes  Paul Turner’s extension of decentering to include *recentering* as a process of figurative symbolism that compliments operational decentered thinking that is always in relation with operational thinking.

There seems to be a common source within these threads,  with multiple paths but the destination may be a Copernican type shift in our (ways) of understanding and interpreting human nature as expressing *value*
