Man and Sin by Piet Schoonenberg (1964) 2.3 XO

[Modernism fixates on the rules of non-contradiction.

And now, 50 years after Schoonenberg wrestled with a Zeitgeist full of false dichotomies, the modern way of thought is dying.

Long dismissed religious and philosophical ideas spring to life.

The concept of the nested form may seem new and bizarre.

But it is not new.

The premoderns wrote according to the nested form without explicitly knowing the structure of the nested form.

Soon enough, the category-based nested form will become routine.

Then, people will look back at the divided moderns and wonder:

How could they have been so stupid?]

[Let me review, again.

I have discussed two types of models, so far.

Both rely on the category-based nested form.

One is the two-level interscope, composed of category-based nested forms on the content and situation levels.

The other is the intersection, composed when two category-based nested forms contribute to one actuality.]
