C.S. Peirce and Category Theory • 7

Re: Category TheoryHenry Story

I’d be very interested in the comments of people who know about Peirce on the two chapters in the book Diagrammatic Immanence I linked to above on “3. Peirce” and “4. Diagrams of Variation : Functor Categories and Presheaves”.  The chapter on Presheaves has some good intuitions on how to explain them that I recognise from studying them a year ago.  At the end of that chapter the author Rocco Gangle argues that Peirce’s diagrams can be modelled in terms of Category Theory.  I would have expected a long list of articles to follow to underwrite that claim.  Perhaps this is all well known in Peirce or CT circles …
