Peirce’s 1903 Lowell Lectures • Preliminaries

Re: Peirce List DiscussionGary Fuhrman

In September the Peirce List began a reading of Peirce’s 1903 Lowell Lectures (“Some Topics of Logic Bearing on Questions Now Vexed”).  I’ve had opportunities for only a few desultory comments from time to time but as it turned out most of those thoughts had to do with the algebraic, graph-theoretic, and logical ideas exhibited by Peirce’s systems of logical graphs and Spencer Brown’s Laws of Form.

At any rate, I thought there might be something in those remarks worth recycling to the Laws of Form discussion group and other interested parties.
