I am pleased to see comments and discussion of Pepper's WORLD HYPOTHESES. Note
the article by Botella & Gallifa in the recent JConstP. I recently happened
upon an article/book review by Pepper in which he adds a 5th root metaphor/w
orld hypothesis to his categorization -- "The System". THe article was a book
review by S. Pepper which appeared in the journal "Philosophical &
Phenomenological Research" Vol 32, 1972, pg 548-553. Pepper wrote a very
laudatory review of a book by Ervin Laszlo INTRODUCTION TO SYSTEMS PHILOSOPHY,
NewYork: Gordon & Breach, 1972.

My impression is that Laszlo's ideas represent a useful expansion of the
construct system. I would appreciate commentary and analysis from anyone more
comfortable with Pepper's work.
