Re: Inquiry Into Inquiry • Discussion 2

The fact most neglected about the Neglected Argument is its character as an abductive argument, a “Holy Guess” if you will to believe, and as such the most fallible and mutable of hypotheses a happily fallible creature can create.  Its object is an hypostatic abstraction from human experience and the hypostasis has reality in virtue of whatever properties would be consistently assigned to it.  Does the object of the guess take an active part in human evolution or does human evolution play its part in making and reshaping its best guess?

O time, thou must untangle this, not I.
It is too hard a knot for me t’untie.

Twelfth Night • Act 2 Scene 3
