Triessentialism: A New Meta-Philosophy

Triessentialism is a response to monism (the -ism that spirit and material stuff are all made of the same stuff), dualism (spirit=good, material=bad) and classic formulations of different -isms. Triessentialism (3-ism for short) asserts that there are three basic essences or types of stuff, or three different realms within which certain rules apply.

Those three realms are the Physical, the Logical, and the Emotional.

They roughly correspond to the concepts What, How, and Why.

They are the three realms of human experience. We have bodies. We have minds (logical thoughts). We have hearts (emotions and feelings). Everything within human experience is one of these three.

Much, much more to come.
