Genus, Species, Pie Charts, Radio Buttons • Discussion 2

Re: Genus, Species, Pie Charts, Radio Buttons • 1 Re: Laws of Form • William Bricken A problem we often encounter is the need to relate a variety of formal languages to the same domain of formal objects.  In our … Continue reading

Genus, Species, Pie Charts, Radio Buttons • Discussion 1

Re: Genus, Species, Pie Charts, Radio Buttons • 1 Re: Laws of Form • William Bricken WB: Here’s an analysis of “Boolean” structure.  It’s actually a classification of the structure of distinctions containing 2 and 3 variables.  The work was … Continue reading

Functional Logic • Inquiry and Analogy • Preliminaries

This report discusses C.S. Peirce’s treatment of analogy, placing it in relation to his overall theory of inquiry.  We begin by introducing three basic types of reasoning Peirce adopted from classical logic.  In Peirce’s analysis both inquiry and analogy are complex … Continue reading

Survey of Relation Theory • 5

In this Survey of blog and wiki posts on Relation Theory, relations are viewed from the perspective of combinatorics, in other words, as a topic in discrete mathematics, with special attention to finite structures and concrete set-theoretic constructions, many of … Continue reading

Triadic Relations • 2

Triadic Relations • Examples from Mathematics For the sake of topics to be taken up later, it is useful to examine a pair of triadic relations in tandem.  We will construct two triadic relations, and each of which is a … Continue reading
