The Gateless Gate

The gateless gate is an encouragement to dialogue in contested areas.  It provides a scaffold for discussing such themes as representation, reference, literalness, reality, iconicity, and beyond.  It explores, and encourages you to explore, the manner in which we arrive at evidence-based conclusions, and what licence we thereby acquire.  It ranges over topics in religion, mathematics, science, and philosophy.

Under “writing” you will find extended discussion of specific problems in a variety of domains.  These discussions all make use of a single kind of argument structure provided by the P-H symbol shown below.  So before reading them, I suggest that the reader acquaint themselves with the very short description of the P-H symbol.  A more extended description of it can be referred to at any time.
