Pragmatic Semiotic Information • Discussion 7

Re: Ontolog ForumJS

JS:
It appears to me that it is very difficult to fully grasp the fundamental issues associated with pragmatic semiotic information when the natural language of the individual conducting the inquiry is the main object of study.

That one took me a double take but if I take the when clause as a hypothetical condition and not the assertion of a fixed intention then I’d naturally agree:

IF
The natural language of the individual conducting the inquiry is the main object of study
THEN
It is very difficult to fully grasp the fundamental issues associated with pragmatic semiotic information.

It is well worth the candle to reflect on the properties of our embedding languages but we normally meet with limited, partial, and well-circumscribed success on any given trial.  That is why we study formalized object languages as microcosms of our yet unformalized semiotic contexts.
