Polilogues revisited

Geert Drieghe articulates one of Leo Apostel’s goals in a quest for an integral philosophy thus (emphasis mine):

First, to unify different perspectives without maiming them. This is similar to Ken Wilber’s ’transcend and include’ where the different perspectives are included but transcended in a bigger whole. Wilber looks for the particular truths of each tradition or system and ties it in with other fields of knowledge while vigorously opposing the imperialist tendencies of any tradition who thinks it alone holds the whole truth.

Unify different perspectives without maiming them. That statement represents a view I maintain in relation to knowledge federation: bringing together world views (perspectives) without filters. Organize those information resources in a subject-centric way such that they are navigable, related, and available for social sensemaking processes.
