Pragmatic Semiotic Information • Discussion 19

Re: Differential Logic and Dynamic Systems
Re: FB | Systems SciencesKenneth Lloyd

An exchange on Facebook took me back to recent discussions of pragmatic truth and long-running discussions of pragmatic semiotic information.  Just by way of a note to myself and anyone who’s interested, I’ll copy my comment here and add a few links to keep the relevant gray cells warm.

Concepts of belief, fact, knowledge, opinion, etc. look rather different from a Peircean pragmatic perspective, in other words, when analyzed in terms of the pragmatic maxim.  In time the traditional conceptions begin to strike us as increasingly clumsy tools, better supplanted by Peirce’s concept of information.
