Western man, like eastern man, is poly-philosophical.
UPPER – TRUTH – RULE – FORCE
1) Aristotle’s Law of truth, The Common Law, and The Martial Law of those who rule: aristocracy.
MIDDLE – UTILITY – COOPERATION – TRADE
2) The Host of Middle Class Philosophers myths of aspiration for cooperation,
3) Aesop and the Nordic, Celtic, and Germanic Myths of household wisdom,
LOWER – NECESSITY – INSURANCE – GOSSIP
4) Aquinas and the Nazarene’s philosophy of poverty, suffering, and hope.
It is not a mystery that these philosophies roughly correspond to the IQ distribution. Both out of ability and out of utility.
