Ameaningful thinking tends to rely on crutches: rules, codes, prescriptions, rigid methods. In extreme forms it becomes obsessive and magical. The tendency of ameaningful thought to register its object as faceless, undifferentiated, psychically distant-to be, so to say, cognitively anesthetic vis-a-vis its object-I call “a-ontologism” (if the term may be forgiven). ” A-ontologism and method-fetishism may, in fact, be regarded as the definitive marks of ameaningful thinking. O n the other hand, meaningful thinking involves a direct perception of unveiled, vivid relations that seem to spring from the quiddities, the particularities of the objects of thought, the problem situations that form the occasions of thought.

Tendency to select-usually on extraneous bases like amenability to “control’’ or to contemplated modes of mathematical treatment-a “simple case” and then to assume that it will be merely a matter of time and energy until the “complex case“ can be handled by application of easy composition rules. Tendency to accept on authority or invent a sacred, inviolable “selfcorrective” epistemology that renders all inquiry in the field a matter of application of rules which preguarantee success. Corollary to the preceding, a view of all aspects of the cognitive enterprise as so thoroughly rule-regulated as to make the role of the cognizer superfluous.
