Re: Message from BK

I haven't had time to read through all of the responses so I'm sorry if this is just a repeat. But couldn't there be a section called "Anthroposophy" or "Specific Systems Of Thought" where those folks could go who want to interpret most discussions in the context of how they hav...

Re: Message from BK

I agree with Martin. But I do think the comments should be focused clearly on BK and his ideas and shouldn't be allowed to wander off into extended comments/debates on subjects and topics unrelated to the original topic and mostly unrelated to BK. There needs to be some flexibility but if the comme...

Re: Message from BK

My view of moderation would be that it should be nearly the same as the topic specific moderation with just a little more flexibility with topics mostly starting with an implicit or explicit tie in to BK and his ideas.

Re: Message from BK

So, yes; criticism is/should be allowed. Where else would you criticize BK but in the BK forum? (this is not a fanclub) Ok, so I'm coming around to a BK related forum dedicated to discussing his model/ideas being a worthwhile option. Not as a kind of BK booster club, so to speak, free of constructi...

Re: Message from BK

Ok, so I'm getting some significant interest in a BK related sub-forum. So what would be the guidelines for moderating it? Are we saying that all discussion there should be focused on explicating or elaborating upon BK's model, and that any critique of the model, regardless of how well thought thro...

Re: Message from BK

Right, so a discussion whether Analytic Idealism perpetuates the Kantian Divide or not, is a good example of a topic belonging to the BK subforum. And why not to the topic-specific forum, since it's surely topic-specific? I like Martin's suggestion. The site is metakastrup so having a somewhat dedi...

Re: what is not in mind is abstract

Well this is getting back to the core debate about the so-called Kantian divide, and the question of whether or not the existence of an immanent, irreducible transpersonal source Mind is also not an inferred abstraction within a human mind that somehow, we know not how, inexplicably emerged from a ...

Re: Message from BK

Of course, this might be more work for the moderator. :) Yup, and likely may have to wait for a succession process. Any volunteers? (Notwithstanding the process portrayed in the HBO series ;) ) One thing about having a single dedicated forum/topic to BK or analytical idealism would be that it might...

Re: what is not in mind is abstract

Mark, Maybe you can explain this some more. In my view mind, perception, and feeling are abstract concepts. My perception of a particular rose might or might not be abstract but "perception" by itself seems to me clearly a abstract concept. But aren't abstract concepts in "mind" ...

Re: Message from BK

With the delinking it might be a good time to solicit comments on future of the forum and how it should be structured. Everything does seem to gravitate toward the general section. The forum could change in two different directions. One way would be more narrowly focused and anything not directly re...
