Survey of Animated Logical Graphs • 2

This is one of several Survey posts I’ll be drafting from time to time, starting with minimal stubs and collecting links to the better variations on persistent themes I’ve worked on over the years.  After that I’ll look to organizing … Continue reading

Conceptual Barriers • 3

Re: Ontolog Forum • Paola Di Maio Partly this discussion and partly just the mood I’m in brought to mind a motley assortment of old reminiscences.  My first years in college I oscillated (or vacillated) between math and physics, eventually … Continue reading

Conceptual Barriers • 2

Re: Ontolog Forum • Paola Di Maio Synchronicity being what it is, here for your contemplation are two pictures from a current discussion on Facebook. See Tables 8 and 9 in the following article and section: Application of Higher Order … Continue reading

Conceptual Barriers • 1

Re: Ontolog Forum • John Sowa My first year at college the university held a cross-campus colloquium taking its theme from C.P. Snow’s Two Cultures about the need for and difficulties of cross-disciplinary communication and collaboration in our day.  The … Continue reading

Semiotics, Semiosis, Sign Relations • 4

Re: Semiotic Triangle • John Corcoran Concepts for Peirce are mental symbols, so they fall under the general designation of signs.  For triadic sign relations in general, then, we are considering a triadic relation among objects of signs, signs of … Continue reading

Abductive Inference, Concept Formation, Hypothesis Formation • 1

In pragmatic semiotics, concept formation like hypothesis formation falls under the heading of abductive inference.  A lot has been said and there’s a lot more to say about that, but things are too much in flux right now to allow … Continue reading
