Animated Logical Graphs : 12

Re: Facebook Discussion • MBM I’ve always been fond of picture proofs — it was one of the things that drew me to graph theory, topology, and the logical graphs of C.S. Peirce and Spencer Brown in the first place.  Sue was … Continue reading

Animated Logical Graphs : 11

Re: Richard Coyne • Inside Out Logic Venn diagrams make for very iconic representations of their universes of discourse.  That is one of the main sources of their intuitive utility and also the main source of their logical limitations — … Continue reading

Re: Facebook Discussion • CJ Yes, that’s the idea. Descriptive semiotics needs formal models for describing any sort of sign-using conduct, whether conducted by humans, life-forms, machines, or sign-using systems in general. Normative semiotics, also known as logic, inquires into … Continue reading

Re: Semiotic Triangle • FB I am still looking for a way to build a bridge between the different senses of complete and incomplete being used in this discussion but while that bridge is under construction it may help to … Continue reading
