Subpages (1): Introduction    

 Suppose that there were some profound flaw in the way human beings think. This would spoil all our reasoning; but since it would also spoil the reasoning we use to check our reasoning, we would never know that our thinking had gone wrong.

A Guide Through the Theory of Knowledge
 A slight variation in the axioms at the foundations of a theory can result in huge changes at the frontier.

Dynamic Synthesism is a new theory that I have developed. It holds, not only that both of the above quotes are true, but also that they reflect something accurate and profound about the current state of philosophy, logic, set theory, mathematics and various other scientific fields. According to the DS theory, there is something that has gone wrong in the way that these fields reason and deal with the ultimate truths of reality. Most of the time these flaws in traditional reasoning go entirely unnoticed--but occasionally we can become aware of them in the form of paradoxes and various other problems.

The DS theory offers a newly revised set of principles--involving very slight variations at the foundations of the theory, which accumulate to become rather huge consequences at the theoretical frontiers.
