Willard
many thanks for the nudge about Elbow's paper.

It puts me in mind of the distinction between Paraconsistency and 
Dialetheism as different ways of dealing with inconsistency:
Paraconsistency controlling/managing inconsistency;
Di-lethian-ism embracing it! _
See

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dialetheism

best wishes and thanks as ever for the fascinating range of references 
which is humanist
