”...the genius of your methodology.“

Why should I believe all this?
"contextual knowing is the product of the kind of human insight into problems presented in experience but contextually in experience, the contexts for which have to be discovered. What you have done is jumped ahead of the statistical factor analysis which is valuable only on the supposition that the relevant factors are all already given and displayed as already categorized ... What you have done is rightly to assume that the relevant categorical relationships have first to be discovered by act of cognitive insight that are creative and depend for their success on past experience of relevant background data fields that have been successfully resolved theoretically ... the genius of your methodology."

Dear Robert Listou,
I have just studied ... first time, quick read ... your slide show and applaud its basic understanding of how the human mind works creatively. I have for many years defended the view that the Quantum theory was the .first physical theory that was based on contextually. Complementarity is the outcome of contextual knowing; and contextual knowing is the product of the kind of human insight into problems presented in experience but contextually in experience, the contexts for which have to be discovered_ What you have done is jumped ahead of the statistical factor analysis which is valuable only on the supposition that the relevant factors are all already given and displayed as already categorized. This is not generally the case, say in social studies, and so results become, garbage in, garbage out! What you have done is rightly to assume that the relevant categorial relationships have first to be discovered by acts of cognitive insight that are creative and depend for their success on past experience of relevant background data fields that have been successfully resolved theoretically.
You may be interested in the authors that led me to my conclusions: Edmund Husserl (Cartesian Meditations), Bernard Lonergan (Insight: Study of Human Understanding). My book Space-Perception and the Philosophy of Science (Univ. of California Press 1987, still in print!) develops this topic in relation to visual perception and quantum theory. Most recently, I read a paper 'Paradoxes of Measurement: From an Experimental Point of View' that wil be published in a forthcoming volume of the Annals of the NY Acad of Science. In it I show that when the contextual background of data taking in classical physics is taken into account, one meets with identical structures that we find in the quantum theory, namely, uncertainty principles, complementarity, and entanglement, all deriving from the latent contextually of Measurement which is covered up and hidden within the mainline tradition of Newtonian physics — and other sciences modeled on this.
I may have further comments to make about what I understand to be the genius of your methodology. These preliminary comments are inspired by my first quick read.
Best wishes
