What of these other fours?

 This blog focuses on similarities between others' four-folds, tetrads, tetrachotomies, and mine, and includes links to online information on others’ fours in their own terms. It results from overgrowth of an old post at The Tetrast "What of these other fours?".

Kent Palmer's Quadralectics
(First posted June 17, 2010, 1:48 PM)
The Quadralectics of Kent D. Palmer, which are part of a larger system of his. It's well beyond my understanding. Palmer left the following comment on June 2, 2010 at a post at The Tetrast:
Emergent design : explorations in systems phenomenology in relation to ontology, hermeneutics and the meta-dialectics of design by Kent Palmer at http://arrow.unisa.edu.au:8081/1959.8/74458 talks about Quadralectics.
He brings together continental philosophy with systems engineering and builds on the work of Metapattern author Pieter Wisse.
Kent is a very prolific writer in the sense of his use of very wide cross references for the structure he has proposed for his Meta Emergent Design. All the elements are related to each other and based on the works of the prior thinkers to a very large extent. The two main themes of ‘Projection of levels of Being’ onto the ‘World Schemas’ are the supporting poles of a hidden structure that he tries to uncover later in his work. There are other ‘thing’s’ in there but of a lower profile. Of course this is my gradual understanding of his work (that I have been reading his works for past 2 and half years) and my review is not complete yet. The degree of novelty and originality in Kent’s work is a very delicate question. I think for the work he has offered to the interested audience, if all the elements of the structure he has unearthed are truly stable and organically linked to each other, in meaning and being, then he has done a tremendous service to the level of effort for the cross-disciplinary fields of science and philosophy.
