MATHEMATICAL PROOF AND LOGIC - A Response to Peter Collins - Elliot Benjamin
In Peter's present Integral World article on the same topic [2], "The problem
with mathematical proof", he extends his analysis of “conventional”
mathematics to the extent of finding problems with mathematical proof in
general. To support his ideas, Peter makes much use of the Pythagorean
triangle, both in the Pythagorean Theorem and in the proof that the square
root of 2 is irrational. But the conclusions that Peter draws from these
examples once again do not work for me.

THE SPECTRUM OF MATHEMATICS - Reply to Elliot Benjamin - Peter Collins
This is certainly Mathematics though admittedly of a distinctive new variety
with an unlimited potential to enrich present knowledge.
Once again I wish to thank Elliot for both reading my "The Problem with
Mathematical Proof" and taking the time to graciously reply with "Mathematical
Proof and Logic." And I very much admire his willingness to actively engage
with important issues relating to Mathematics that I fear many of his fellow
practitioners would disregard as simply irrelevant.

COMMENT ON CORBETT'S "SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION" - Alexander Astin
I really appreciated Joe Corbett's essay. Over the years we've been applying
the AQAL formulation to education and health care in much the same way that he
applies it to other fields and disciplines (if anyone would like references to
some of this work just email me). For us AQAL has proved to be a very flexible
and powerful heuristic.
I agree with the argument that Wilber's penchant for collapsing the four to
three ignores important distinctions. However, my own concern has always been
that his preoccupation with (and extraordinary expertise in) the upper left
cause all three of the other quadrants to get short shrift.
