How to Criticize with Kindness: Philosopher Daniel Dennett on the Four Steps to Arguing Intelligently By Maria Popova “In disputes upon moral or scientific points,” Arthur Martine counseled in his magnificent 1866 guide to the art of conversation, “let your aim be to come at truth, not to conquer your opponent.

ParadigmOfComplexity The last few decades have seen the emergence of a growing body of literature devoted to a critique of the so-called “old” or “Cartesian-Newtonian” paradigm which, in the wake of the prodigious successes of modern natural science, came to dominate the full range of authoritative intellectual discourse and its associated worldviews. Often coupled with a materialistic, and indeed atomistic, metaphysics, this paradigm has been guided by the methodological principle of reductionism. The critics of reductionism have tended to promote various forms of holism, a term which, perhaps more than any other, has served as the rallying cry for those who see themselves as creators of a “new paradigm.” At the forefront of such a challenge, and in many ways the herald of the new paradigm, is the relatively new movement of transpersonal psychology.
Process View of Work In his book The Agenda (New York: Crown Business, 2001), Michael Hammer defines process as “an organized group of related activities that work together to transform one or more kinds of input into outputs that are of value to the customer.” Hammer’s definition communicates several key ideas: A process is a group of activities, not just one.The activities that make up a process are not random or ad hoc; they are related and organized.All the activities in a process must work together toward a common goal.Processes exist to create results your customers — whether they’re internal (within your organization, such as a department) or external (outside your organization, such as paying customers) — care about. A process also can be viewed as a “value chain,” in which each activity or step contributes to the end result. Some activities directly contribute value, while others may not. All activities consume enterprise resources, however.

The Octarine argument. Yes, yes - colour corresponds with real properties. But colour itself is not in the external physical world. It's like those cases where a picture from a telescope or a microscope is given colours artificially to help show up the different substances.
