Re: Peirce ListTom Gollier

We do not live in axiom systems.  We do not live encased in languages, formal or natural.  There is no reason to think we will ever have exact and exhaustive theories of what’s out there, and the truth, as we know, is “out there”.  Peirce understood there are more truths in mathematics than are dreamt of in logic and Gödel’s realism should have put the last nail in the coffin of logicism, but some ways of thinking just never get a clue.

That brings us to the question:

  • What are formalisms and all their embodiments in brains and computers good for?

For that I’ll turn to cybernetics …
