Peirce’s Categories • 13

Re: Peirce ListRobert Marty

With a few choice exceptions I have always found Peirce’s earlier writings on categories, relations, and semiotics to be more clear, exact, and fruitful in practice than his last attempts to explain himself without the requisite logical and mathematical supports.

Still, I like Robert Marty’s “podium” picture of the universal categories, comprehend it all or not, and I found myself once using a similar picture to explain the relationships among the big 3 normative sciences of aesthetics, ethics, and logic.  I called this “The Pragmatic Cosmos”, using cosmos in the sense of a global order.  It looks like most of this stuff has fallen off the live web but here’s a few links I found.

I’ll copy and format pieces of this to my blog as I get time.
