Preface

  1. Personal interaction in a social-physical context is a useful entrance point into theory about cross-cultural knowledge
  2. The person, as observer, is tied emically to things (and concepts) via differences, sameness, and appropriateness
  3. The person may react to three kinds of hierarchical structures--phonological, grammatical, and referential--each with its features of slot, class, role, and cohesion
  4. A person chooses temporary perspectives via particle, wave, and field, as a crucial part of the ability of the self
  5. A personal search for knowledge involves the search for patterns within patterns in a holistic context
  6. A person may distort innate positive universals into negative particular action
