Definition and Determination • 2

Recent discussions have brought to mind a number of persistent problems in pragmatic thought, especially if we aim to apply Peirce’s conceptions to real practical effect in understanding pressing real-world phenomena.  Among the host of issues, the following two objectives rise to the fore.

  1. To clarify the concept of a sign relation to the point where a full-fledged theory of signs can be developed on the basis of the resulting definition.
  2. To comprehend semiosis, that is, the variety of sign processes, in a fully dynamic fashion, by augmenting the bare definition of a sign relation with a temporal dimension and the capacity to formulate laws of possibly goal-oriented temporal evolution.

Anyway, that’s the plan.

But I have a bunch of wikifying or maybe blogging to do before I can get back to work on the substantial issues.
