Definition and Determination • 14

Re: Peirce List (1) (2)

I’ve been trying to sort through the explosion of topics and tangents that have arisen over the past month — disruptions in my actual and virtual office spaces have made it hard for me to keep track — I still have the general impression that many things once relatively well understood among Peircean pilgrims are no longer as commonly consensual.

I can almost hear Galadriel’s prologue echoing in my ears …

I’m still not sure how we jumped from relatively simple questions about the meaning of correspondence and determination in Peirce’s definition of triadic sign relations to all the other issues that flared up, and I’m not seeing anything in the late Peirce manuscripts he didn’t say many times before, perhaps less subtly but rather more concretely and thus more clearly for all that.

By way of trying to get organized again, or maybe just recapping my part before moving on, here are the blog editions of my main comments on these subjects over the past month.

  • Definition and Determination
  • Readings On Determination
  • Readings On Determination • Discussion
  • Types of Reasoning in C.S. Peirce and Aristotle
  • Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry

cc: Inquiry List • Peirce List (1) (2) (3) (4) (5)
