with truth, relevance, inclusiveness,
neutrality and personhood in sight

This Internet site gives free access for all to a collection
of philosophical, literary and other documents dealing with
matters of lasting importance, such as
the primacy of norms and values.
It is a site in its own right, that is, it does
not depend on, nor have, any external links.
On your way to the inside of the six-level edifice
erected here information will not only be imparted
to you by dint of academic writings but also in
the shape of short stories, poems and pictures.
You will, indeed, be faced with facts and reasons,
while coming across a variety of symbols and forms
of symbolism as well. All of these are
intended to help you to gain a better insight in
and into your own life as a person among persons,
if not a new, neutral-inclusive insight into life
and nonlife in general and together.
You can browse thru, read and download the works listed
below by means of site-internal links in hypertext documents.
They have been designed in such a way that they provide good
viewing both on the monitor and on paper. (You are therefore
invited to print them out too). While the present document is the
principal part of the first or top level of the TRINPsite tree of
files, the sections of the Model typically belong to the sixth
and lowest level.
In one way or another, directly or indirectly, all these
works serve or concern the following TRINP values:
- 1__( veridical ) T R u t h ,
- as opposed to falsehood, lying, promise-breaking
and (institutionalized) supernaturalism
- 2__R e l e v a n c e or
I N c l u s i v e n e s s ,
- as distinct from irrelevance, discrimination (on
the basis of whatever factor) and exclusivism
- 3__( catenical ) N e u t r a l i t y ,
- as distinct from extremism and as present in
values such as equality, harmony and moderation
- 4__( the right to )
P e r s o n h o o d ,
- as opposed to murder, torture, oppression, and
religious or other forms of totalitarianism.
It is argued in the Model of Neutral-Inclusivity why truth,
relevance (or inclusiveness), neutrality and personhood
should not only be treated and respected as values but as
fundamental values. To a greater or lesser degree each of
the above writings is part of one project to broaden and
deepen the neutral-inclusive denominational 'paradigm' that
rests on these four pillars.
