Is «forced reversal» a general phenomenon of all THEE hierarchies?
The tentative conclusion from this initial survey is that forcible reversal does not apply other than in Primary Hierarchies.
Many oscillating dualities have been provisionally determined. (They should be routinely identified, but this did not occur in earlier times.) Examples in my survey below have been restricted to frameworks within: Endeavour-RH, Action-RL1, Experience-RL4, Communication-RL5 and Purpose-RL6 where there is most confidence in current formulations.
The Root Hierarchy emanates the Primary Hierarchies, so its levels are internally complex. The 7 Primary Hierarchies contain the irreducible elements of the taxonomy. Other hierarchical frameworks derive from these, either as the structural hierarchy and mostly via the Principal Typology. So all levels in other frameworks refer to complicated entities.
As I have only offered assertions without argument or evidence, links are provided to allow you to review and check for yourself. I welcome alternative views.
Frameworks in the Survey
Hierarchy of Endeavour (RH)
This is a unique hierarchy and almost anything is possible. The levels have an enormous inner complexity and are referred to as realms
The oscillating duality is: external-public (ODD) v internal-private (EVEN): see details here.
Reversal of the duality might be desired and could be possible. However, there is no reason to think that it would change the element. A private action is still an action, a public inquiry is still an inquiry etc.
Primal Quests (RH')
These are purposive systems that govern the happiness or meaning in a person's life.
The matrix of oscillation focused on the direction of attention: odd levels look inward (private and self-centric) and even levels look outward (public and socio-centric). The creative element oscillated with this: discovery (ODD) or development (EVEN).
It is difficult to envisage a reversal.
Approaches to Stabilization (PH'4)
The 7 approaches initially published in Ch.7 of Working with Values as about identity development, were re-named and revised for web posting.
The oscillating duality focuses on the sense of self which is diffuse and private (ODD) or distinct and public (EVEN).
It is difficult to envisage how a reversal might occur.
Ethical Choice Approaches(PH'6)
The 7 approaches are summarized on the website here, and full details can be found in Ch.7 of Working with Values, which can be downloaded here.
The oscillating duality is teleological (ODD) v deontological (EVEN).
It seems nonsensical to imagine a teleological approach becoming deontological or vice versa.
