Aristotle, no, does not (yet) make the grade as philosopher of requisite variety for the information society, (but) certainly offers inspiration

Pieter Wisse
Information Dynamics, The Netherlands


Abstract
A reading, from the perspective of the author’s Metapattern and semiotic ennead, of the works on logic and metaphysics by Aristotle explains why his philosophy of science stops at mutually distinct disciplines. It lacks interdisciplinary variety, therefore does not provide for recognizing, designing etc. interdependency. The open scope for behavior including inquiry, necessary for responsibly living in our modern network society, is shown to correspond with radicalizing Aristotle’s precondition for syllogism’s validity. For his concept of genus (class of things) acts as basic modus, as it may now be called, already making syllogizing essentially modal. Because this point seems lost on academics and practitioners alike, they remain unaware of a critical obstacle for helping develop the information society.
