There is thus an intuitive aspect of analogical thinking in transposition, here transposing the idea of the capture of gullible minds to the capture of fish, but this is not all transposition does. The dialectical method also transposes the problematic of truth in discourse along a deductive chain of reasoning, “if . . . then. . . .” Also, empirical induction is based on a transposition, this time transposing an experience onto a thought schema, which will in turn lend itself to being transposed onto other experiences. In truth the very distinction between theory and praxis neglects the shared use of transposition. Theory is itself a praxis that is embodied and further materialised by transposing ideas onto a material body of notation, just as every praxis is reliant on implicit or explicit, improvisational or set mental schemas. Whichever method (inductive, deductive, or dialectical), a general form of transposition is operating in the pursuit of knowledge or know-how. Its systematic use participates in what Michel Foucault called an episteme, and, from the point of view of the consensus it drives, transposition also consolidates what Thomas Kuhn called a paradigm.
