Pragmatic Semiotic Information • Discussion 20

Re: R.J. Lipton and K.W. ReganIBM Conference on the Informational Lens

A little bit of history recoded …

It may be worth noting the Information Revolution in our understanding of science began in the mid 1860s when C.S. Peirce laid down what he called the “Laws of Information” in his lectures on the “Logic of Science” at Harvard University and the Lowell Institute.  Peirce took up “the puzzle of the validity of scientific inference” and claimed it was “entirely removed by a consideration of the laws of information”.

Here’s a collection of excerpts and commentary I assembled on the subject.
