Peirce’s 1870 “Logic Of Relatives” • Comment 10.7

Here is what I get when I analyze Peirce’s “giver of a horse to a lover of a woman” example along the same lines as the dyadic compositions.

We may begin with the mark-up shown in Figure 19.

If we analyze this in accord with the spreadsheet model of relational composition, the core of it is a particular way of composing a triadic giving relation G \subseteq T \times U \times V with a dyadic loving relation L \subseteq U \times W so as to obtain a specialized type of triadic relation (G \circ L) \subseteq T \times V \times W. The applicable constraints on tuples are shown in Table 20.

\text{Table 20.} ~~ \text{Composite of Triadic and Dyadic Relations}
  \mathit{1} \mathit{1} \mathit{1} \mathit{1}
G T U V  
L   U   W
G \circ L T   V W

The hypergraph picture of the abstract composition is given in Figure 21.
