The above is a sampling from the work in progress Triadic Philosophy, a Kindle book. I have set the price at $9.99 and it will not change although the book will grow substantially. As it does, Kindle users will be able to download the latest version (by managing their Kindle). This is an alternative mode of expressing thought and it could only occur in the context of cyber-space. This is a book that is literally being played out on Twitter. While it is meant to strike at the heart of dualistic philosophy, it is also meant to be a clear and useful iteration of thinking that is universal in relevance. Triadic Philosophy will not be able, as it grows, to be relegated to any group or category or school of thought whatsoever. We are beyond that. You can sample more of Triadic Philosophy and purchase or borrow the book (if a Kindle Prime member) by clicking the image below.

Welcome to an integral philosophy for the 2000s. 1000+ entries. Updated 28 April, 2013 Contact the author at steverose @ gmail.com Triadic Philosophy is a revolution in progress. It is taking place @stephencrose on Twitter. It is the first truly integral philosophy to grow out of the thinking of Charles Sanders Peirce. It is not Peirce, but it would not exist without him. It takes the essence of Peirce’s vision of triadic thinking, thinking in threes, and grafts it to the revolutionary Triad Reality, Ethics, Aesthetic to arrive at a mode of thinking which can in itself change the world as individuals embrace it. Because Triadic Philosophy always issues in conscious action, much of this growing work deals with this world and its remaking under the banner of four core values which Triadic Philosophy understands to be ontological, essential to being itself. These values are Tolerance, Democracy, Helpfulness and Non-idolatry. Triadic Philosophy is much more than an effective mode of thinking, capable of giving life meaning and direction. It is also a template for the evolution of a spirituality which universalizes and reappropriates the essence of what Jesus brought to this planet. It is not false to suggest that those who have walked away from the world of organized religion will find in Triadic Philosophy the insight needed forge a spirituality that avoids the pitfalls of fatuous new age thinking while embracing the iconoclasm, humor and affirmation of life which Triadic Philosophy represents. Yet another layer of Triadic Philosophy is the attention it gives to the means by which we make decisions. Triadic Philosophy describes not only the phenomenon of guidance as an easily developed skill; it also outlines the decisional grid which enables us to fathom what we are thinking and desiring when that knowledge seems confused and opaque. The form of Triadic Philosophy enables anyone to dip into it without making a purchase. Almost 100 statements and aphorisms can be seen merely by sampling the text. The basic value of the book, in addition to being a unified understanding of how to think, is its use as an essential reference in the digital age. Short and pithy statements are the coin of the realm today. With Kindle and other readers, a person can dip in any time and profit from each minute spent. There is yet another value which will probably be perceived by only a few people who have the capacity to grasp and run with it. The cyber-community is a major action theme within Triadic Philosophy. The entrepreneur who gets her mind around this single concept will be the one who leads our current stagnant economy out of the wilderness. For these reasons, Triadic Philosophy ranks as a major publishing event of this fateful young century when the values we consciously choose will quite literally determine our fate.
In my effort to get my ideas out I have created blog posts over time and morphed them into short Kindle books that sell for a few dollars and have the merit of introducing notions that may be far from the thinking of most readers. I naturally hope they become more common. This blog has the merit of getting indexed on search engines so it is possible that some may be led here, The book itself need cost nothing if one has a Kindle and belongs to Amazon Select. I believe it can also be borrowed which in fact reimburses the author more than a royalty would. The main point is to underline my main thesis. That we are engaged in a global struggle to defeat sprawl and the car as the default means of transportation. I am not holding my breath. You would be amazed at the progress this idea has made in the last 50 years.
