Stephen McDaniel Ah, I’m not much for the platonic realm. For me (information theory centric), it’s a human mechanism to compress information into simpler forms in order to fit the universe into our tiny brains.
But knowing each of our respective background interests/assumptions, helps us avoid conversation traps (same word, different meanings / slants)
If we go to fatherhood, I’d skip back to Wundt, as I more follow the line of Wundt, process theory, categories, etc. I also like Brentano, who influenced Freud as well being his teacher, but I liked the line of Edmund Husserl (another student of Brentano) a little more there, who went in the direction of phenomenology and influenced basically all of modern philosophy. from which I think the Spanish school and consequential liberal theorists probably hold some sway in my way of thinking.
