Newton and Einstein had it right - Reflection in H2CM

In the New Year I've a series of posts that almost seemed to write themselves after reading:

Johnson, D.D. (1994) Dualistic, Multiplistic, and Relativistic Thinking as it Relates to a Psychology Major. Honors Theses. Paper 202. http://opensiuc.lib.siu.edu/uhp_theses/202/
What (I believe) Hodges’ model does provide through its combined structure and care (knowledge) domains is ready cognitive access to three forms of thought as discussed by Johnson:
  1. Dualist
  2. Multiplistic
  3. and Relativistic Thinking
In selected papers within the bibliography and here on W2tQ since 2006 I've made many claims about Hodges' model. The old website (defunct) introduced Hodges' model from the standpoints of patient (intra- interpersonal); carer (sociology); student - life long learner (sciences); lecturer, institution (political - did I mention 'citizen' in there?).

Johnson has provided a fresh impetus to consider the model anew and with it threshold concepts and other ideas. In the posts to follow there are for example at least four ways in which Hodges' model supports dualist thinking and (importantly) mitigates against its possible excesses.
