The whole enchilada: Leibniz, the first person, third person, and the brain. A new mind-brain model for the post-analytic post-materialist world. [Please feel free to use whatever I have written on the topic of Leibniz to advance your own theory of the mind and brain. All copyrights are released and may be freely used. I am 72 years old and do not need any more publications. -RBC.] We are now in a position of assembling the various parts of a new, comprehensive mind/brain model, incorporating in it what we believe to be the philosophy of the 21st century, that of Leibniz's platonism. As discussed previously, B Russell observed that there are two forms of knowledge, which we can assign to the hemi-cerebral model of the brain: http://www.nwlink.com/~donclark/knowledge/right_left_brain.html a) The left brain metaphor-- This deals with what Russell called "knowledge" by description. This is the rational doman of analytic philosophy, so it deals in linear sequences. It can also be called the Third Person singular. b) The right brain metaphor-- this is what is left out of the materialist and analytic models of the mind and brain. It is Russell's "knoeledge by acquaintance", namely, the world of experience, that of perception, comnsciousness, ? that of the First Person singular. It nonlinear and wholistic. This is submitted to all as the new paradigm of the mind and brain which needs further developing by others. Dr. Roger B Clough NIST (ret.)
