Peirce’s 1870 “Logic Of Relatives” • Comment 2

In a recent post on a related topic I gave this assessment of our present situation:

One of the more disconcerting developments, I might say “devolutions”, I’ve observed over the past 20 years has been the general slippage back to absolutist and dyadic ways of thinking, all of it due to the stubborn pull of unchecked reductionism and a failure to comprehend the relational paradigm, especially the basic facts about triadic relations, their irreducibility, and the consequences thereof.

For anyone who sees our situation this way, and who thinks it calls for a remedy, the question becomes:  How to remediate a persistent failure to comprehend the relational paradigm, especially the basic facts about triadic relations, their irreducibility, and the consequences thereof?

My answer to that naturally brings me back to this thread, so I’ll continue from here.
