Even recently, Avi Sion, the owner of Logician.net, is quoted as saying that "No Copernican revolution is conceivable in the field of logic: It would not merely be anti-Aristotelian, but anti-rational" (Sion, 2005). Although the title of his other work, Future Logic, seems to contradict this.

In my own work, The Dimensional Philosopher's Toolkit (Coppedge, 2013), however, I mention that there is a possibility of a 'second center' to concepts, a new idea that is at least figuratively Copernican. Indeed, if two centers are possible for a given concept, this has implications for typology of categories, and hence ideas such as systems and intrinsics within philosophy and science. A new conceptual tool as fundamental as a second center, which I compare to a second zero, could re-figure the context for fundamentals like quantity, scale, and coherency.

Diagrammatic approaches to reasoning, which I introduce in the same book, offer advantages for conceptualizing perfect coherence. Although Coherentism was previously conceived to be a relevant concept to philosophy (see for example Rescher 1973, Lewis 2001, and Wilber 1999), the concept was not previously applied in a relevant way to diagrams. Another notable contender, the Cartesian coordinate system, in fact gradually came under criticism for its incoherence, its need to consume infinites or to dwell on a 'fractionalized equation'. The corroboration between quality and quantity is critical for understanding the nature of coherence, being a logic almost comparable to quantum-superposition.

Elsewhere (see my articles titled "The Only System" and "Construing Objective Coherentism in Aristotle's Categories" ) I describe how the method of categorical deduction is distinct from the Aristotelian categorical syllogism (even though some say that the term syllogism literally means deduction, it can also be...
