Chapter 3: The New Code: we establish the historical context in which the New Code
emerged. This is followed by a presentation of design strategy behind its creation and a
teasing out of some of the implications. The new code change format is presented with a
specific new code game. The topic of multiple perceptual positions with special emphasis
on that privileged set of perceptual positions - Triple Description - is offered.
Part III: A Steady Sea Breeze
Chapter 1: Some Key Issues in NLP
modeling
a. Coding issues: the presentation of a number of issues associated with coding,
including the tension between elegance in Modeling and pedagogical
requirements.
b. Ordering Functions: a study in the ordering relationships common found in NLP
patterning. Distinctions are drawn between linear and hierarchical orderings and a
number of different relationships by which such orderings are created are
examined.
c. Logical Levels and Logical Types: a brief excursion in the historical development
of the notion of logical type. This is followed by an analysis and a proposed reform
of usage, given the distinctions uncovered and explicated
Chapter 2: Some Key Issues in NLP
application
and NLP
training
a. Sorting functions: the beginning of an explicit strategy for knowing, given a
specific presenting problem, how to select the appropriate pattern for an effective
intervention.
b. Chunking and Logical Levels: the development
of a careful argument beginning with ordinary chunking exercises and resulting in
the precise sorting of two of the most common ordering relationships in
hierarchies:
logical level (generated by logical inclusion) and part/whole hierarchies.
Several applications are described.
c. Form and Substance: Process and Content: a preliminary effort to make explicit
one of the key differentiators in NLP activities, both modeling and application.
Chapter 3: Recommendations: an invitation to consider a series of specific
recommendations to the NLP community of how specifically the quality of work in NLP
can be improved and what specific steps we as a community might take to ensure that NLP
takes its rightful place in making useful and insightful contributions to an appreciation of
how we as humans function, with, of course, special focus on performances of excellence.
This discussion is followed by a commentary on how the patterning of NLP might be
applied in wider social contexts.
One final suggestion on the use of this book - one of the co-authors, Grinder, worked as a
professional linguist prior to participating along with Bandler in the creation of NLP. In the
tradition of linguist research, there is a tendency to put in the footnotes some of the most interesting
observations, albeit ones that have yet to be adequately explicated. While footnotes in a book are
typically considered something of a requirement and incidental to the material - we have chosen to
follow the tradition of linguistics. Our footnotes offer commentary and description that are quite
rich and we urge the reader to consider them carefully. The reader will note that we have decided to
handle the gender bias inherent in natural language by more or less randomly alternating masculine
and feminine pronouns in their generic use.
