Different minds are drawn to Peirce for different reasons and they tend to discover different stores of value there. I was attracted to his work largely for his insights into logic, math, and science and because his articulations of their springs and catches ring true to the ways their own practitioners understand them in practice.
One consequence is my tendency to approach the question of categories from a particular angle, more through the logic and mathematics of relations than by way of phenomenology.
What follows from that approach gives me sufficient reason to pursue it, but I’ll have to save further motivation until I develop more material from the 1870 Logic of Relatives.
