ItemThe hartshornian way : on solving the problem of Dualism(Assumption University, 2011)The Western way of thinking has been dominated by the Aristotelian law of the excluded middle. Even though Hegel tried to create a revolution for Western thought through his dialectical logic, the Aristotelian logic or the either/or logic still haunts the Western world. However, Hegelian logic is not so clear in terms of epistemology to solve the problem of dualism. It is Charles Hartshorne who could be said to have successfully solved the problem of dualism in the West. This paper will demonstrate what the author calls "the Hartshornian Way" and argues that only through this way, truths of the opposites can be recognized and combined together successfully.
