How the Mind Seeks Truth: The Four Step Process of Discovery
Feb 08, 2002 02:42 PM
Some readers on this forum may be interested in the following
material from my unpublished draft manuscript from the 1980s on
Colonel Olcott and his testimony about the Mahatmas.
These pages deal with the 4 step process of discovery. Of course,
this is a simplified presentation but the basic points, I believe,
How the Mind Seeks Truth
[extracted from THE MODERN RESEARCHER by Barzun and Graff]
The Four Step Process of Discovery:
How to Discriminate Between What is
Possible and What is Probable
A More Detailed Outline of the 4-Step Process of Discovery
An Example of How the 4-Step Process Works
A pole vault contest
All of the above is relevant to what I posted in the last month or
two about the "unpacking method" and the "possibility/plausibility"
method of argument.
It is also relevant to what I will be posting in
the next day or so.
