Words are not magical things with me. I look for underlying concepts. You want to call it pragmatism and reject me calling it “faith in pragmatism-as-bearer-of-truth” that’s fine.

But when you say pragmatism, after our conversation tonight, I will see it as, “faith in pragmatism as bearer of truth” when it comes from you. I’ve learned something of your system that you assign truth values to.

 

Other stuff. I don’t know what they are yet. I haven’t seen them. My eyes stay open. I’m agnostic about what I don’t know. It’s likely we’re not so far off from each other; the difference is, I don’t reject what I haven’t seen: I just say, “I don’t know”.
