## Systems of Interpretation • 5

Re: Peirce List • Jerry Chandler An elementary sign relation is an ordered triple   It is called elementary because it is one element of a sign relation where is a set of objects, is a set of signs, and … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • Mike Bergman • Valentine Daniel For its pertinence to the present discussion, here again is what Peirce wrote about the mathematical way of using individual or particular cases to make general hypotheses or suppositions: Mathematical Demonstration … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • Mike Bergman • Valentine Daniel The “triskelion” figure in the previous post shows the bare essentials of an elementary sign relation or individual triple   There’s a less skeletal figure Susan Awbrey and I used in … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • Mike Bergman • Valentine Daniel Questions have arisen about the different styles of diagrams and figures used to represent triadic sign relations in Peircean semiotics.  What do they mean?  Which style is best?  Among the most … Continue reading

## Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry • 22

Re: Peirce List • Jerry Rhee • Tom Gollier • Edwina Taborsky All through 1995 I worked on a graduate project in systems engineering at Oakland University developing my ideas about Inquiry Driven Systems.  I wrote a project report on … Continue reading

## Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry • 21

Re: Peirce List • Jerry Rhee • Tom Gollier • Edwina Taborsky Given a working hypothesis, as abduced in the previous post, the next phase of inquiry uses deductive inference to expand the implied consequences of the abductive hypothesis, with … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • Jerry Rhee • Tom Gollier • Edwina Taborsky In passing from a sign-relational account to a propositional analysis of Dewey’s story there is an old mathematical trick, analogous to the method of adding fractions by expressing … Continue reading

## Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry • 19

Re: Peirce List • Tom Gollier At this point in our paper, Sue and I had already introduced the rudiments of sign relations, as far as the common notions and continuities of thought underpinning the semiotic bridge from Aristotle to … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • Tom Gollier Let me dispel any notion that “the interpretant introduces the person as part of the object-sign-interpretant structure”.  We may have left it implicit or unclear in the text but the lower case “i” and … Continue reading
