This initial volume, Volume 0, sets forth the foundations of F.E.D.'s dialectical-mathematical "model of everything".

Synthesizing ancient themes of dialectic, «autokinesis», and 'self-refluxivity' ['karmicity'], with modern themes of logical and set-theoretical paradox as self-reflexivity, and of integro-differential equation nonlinearity, evoked via both occidental and oriental sources from antiquity, and via modern developments in natural/social science, and in mathematics, this initial volume lays out foundations for a unified theory of dialectic. Foundations presented include a unification of the traditions of Platonian and Hegelian dialectic, and the discovery, for the first time in human history, of a rich and versatile 'mathematics of dialectic'.

This new 'mathematics of dialectic' is utilized to derive a seventeen-symbol equation, which models, 'onto-qualitatively', the dialectical self-evolutions, and 'self-meta-evolutions', of our «kosmos» as a totality, which also predicts a next major «kosmos» self-development, and which summarizes the dialectical "theory of everything" that gives this work its title.

A dialectical, categorial progression of systems of 'qualo-quantitative', dialectical arithmetics, are modeled, using the second system in that progression, its first explicitly dialectical system, starting from "Natural Numbers", or N, arithmetic, as first system. The second system is a 'purely-qualitative', "non-standard model" of N arithmetic [i.e., the first four, "first order" Peano Postulates hold for this system], with a 'contra-Boolean' algebra, founded upon a hitherto-unnoticed, strong negation of Boole's "Fundamental Law of [formal-logical] Thought".

See Prelude & Postlude Letters, below, for more background on the content of Volume 0.

Volume 1: Geneses of the Dialectical Arithmetics

Edition 0 – 1st printing (forthcoming)
hardcover, full-color image-book
from F.E.D. Press

Volume 1 recounts the genesis of the new dialectical mathematics in detail.

Volume 2: Dialectical 'Meta-Models' of the 'Human Phenome'

Edition 0 — 1st printing (forthcoming)
hardcover, full-color image-book
from F.E.D. Press

Volume 2 presents 'psycho-historical dialectical meta-models', expressed via the new dialectical mathematics, which zoom-in on human-social constructions, including a 'meta-model' of the genesis of written language, a 'meta-model' of the development of ancient Mediterranean philosophy, and a 'meta-model' of the development of the standard arithmetics.

Volume 3: The Dialectic of Nature

Edition 0 — 1st printing (forthcoming)
hardcover, full-color image-book
from F.E.D. Press

Volume 3 explores 'self-meta-evolutions' of human society as processes of later natural history, including those of the human-social relations, and of the human-social forces, of human-societal self-reproduction. It also addresses the parallel development of related human thought-modes, including an historical-dialectical mathematical 'meta-model' of the 'dialectic of the dialectic itself'.
