Michael Lissack has developed a new site which he calls 'epi-thinking' for 'evoking a new way of thinking which recognizes that:
Actions have a fundierung relationship with context and
Cognition has a fundierung relationship with semiotic
For Lissak 'fundierung (following Hegel) is 'the "overlooked taken for granted" things which underlie an action
or understanding -- and have the power to change things merely by being
paid attention to.'
