Well, it's dogmatic in the sense that we're dogmatically assuming that reason and logic are a good basis for rational discussion and thought. I prefer cheddar cheese and Ritz crackers as the basis of my paradigms. :-)

I prefer 4 nickels for my pair o' dimes.

I deserved that pun-ishment.

DSimon--we could also be pragmatically, not dogmatically, working under the assumption that reason and logic are a good basis for rational discussion and thought. And will continue to do so until such assumption shows itself to be untenable.

It's just the way it is. Dogma chasing after Karma.

Yeah, but the whole idea of "let's try this way of thinking as long as it works" is itself relying on a rationalistic philosophy, isn't it? Some religious beliefs would argue "let's try it this way forever whether or not it works well because that sort of approach is inherently good".
