Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry : 13

Re: Peirce List DiscussionMartin Kettelhut

I’ve been calling attention to what Peirce wrote about the “Doctrine of Individuals” (what we’d probably call a theory of individuals) for quite some time.  Just for starters, here’s a few entry points I was able to find right off.

  • Conceptual Graphs List • (27 Nov 2000)
  • Peirce List Discussion • (1)(2)(3)(4)
  • Mathematical Demonstration and the Doctrine of Individuals • ISW(1)(2)

To my mind this constitutes one of the most far-reaching insights in all of the thought Peirce passed on to us, making as it does a turn from the dead hand of absolute ontology to the rather more handy and pragmatic tack of discourse-relative ontology and interpretive information theory.
