Infinite Variances

The competitive method is the scientific method (if we want to call the result a ‘method’) – and the Infinite Variances is the scientific paradigm, the eternal theoretical framework within which theories, laws, and generalizations will find their test and support, if any. – It is the recognition that everything may depend on anything; that we cannot trace the dependence to any specific source; and that the degrees of dependence and interdependence vary. – As we can never know what exactly is dependent on what and to which degree, we can only give narratives, views, small lessons.

Scientific Pragmatism

In science ‘pragmatism’ has been delegated to the role of ‘just pragmatism’ as it has not fit in the traditional moulds of creative imagination of philosophers. – I claim that when we strip philosophy and social sciences of the layers of illegitimate questions, and the masks of concepts, then there is nothing left but pragmatism, a scientific pragmatism, which really is the new paradigm. – Yet, if pragmatism would mean all that is in accordance with ‘common sense’ is correct, then we would be on thin ice again. For ‘common sense’ sounds as if it would be a brand of sense – and it is not. ‘Common sense’ is a ‘tool’ of argumentation, a better one than the imaginary systems enforced by the philosophers – but nothing more. - It is scientific pragmatism, because I have scientifically proven that expressions are not things, but interpretations of feelings, and these are arranged in the mind by perceptions in competition – which is a very practical matter.
