Reductionism a Problem of Philosophy

cover‘The problem here is the conflict between ‘full and explicit’. for when we adopt a reflective attitude we can analyse the elements which are operative in a particular experience. However by analysing by taking the whole apart – we change the structure of the experience, it finds expression as a fragmented whole. The fullness, the qualitative unity – of the reciprocity is lost. The problem here is problem of philosophy itself. ‘
