Ontological Ruminations

Six Protagorean Propositions on


the Nature of Man and the World

1. The history of ontology reveals that our perception of the structure of the world has changed dramatically over time.

2. The scope of human action and activity has changed with this change in perception of the structure of the world.

3. Human beings, at least in part, constitute the world (i.e., they contribute, in part, to the constitution of the world).

4. Human beings, in turn, are constituted at least in part by the scope of our activities.

5. Our self-constitution after the image of what we believe the world to be has in fact made the world what it is, if only in part.

6. The world is, again, in part, self-constituting.
