The Hartshornian Way: A Way to Solve Dualism

Sriwarakuel Warayuth -.


The Western way of thinking has been dominated by the Aristotelian law of the excluded middle. Even though Hegel tried to initiate a revolution in the Western thought through his dialectical logic, the Aristotelian logic or the either/or logic still haunts the European philosophy. However, the Hegelian logic is not clear enough in epistemological terms to solve the problem of dualism. It is Charles Hartshorne who could be said to have successfully solved this problem in the West. In the article the author demonstrates what he calls the Hartshornian Way and argues for this way as the only one through which truths of the opposites can be successfully recognized and combined together.
