Sign Relational Manifolds • 3

I’m not sure when it was I first noticed the relationship between manifolds and semiotics but I distinctly recall the passage in Serge Lang’s Differential and Riemannian Manifolds which brought the triadic character of tangent vectors into high relief.  I copied out a set of excerpts highlighting the point and shared it with the Inquiry, Ontology, and Peirce lists.

Excerpts from Serge Lang, Differential and Riemannian Manifolds,

Chapter 2.  Manifolds

Using the concepts and terminology from Lang’s text, I explained the connection between manifold theory and semiotics in the following way.
