Differential Logic • Comment 3

Re: Laws Of Form Discussion • BL In my previous comment on boundaries in object universes and venn diagrams, and always when I’m being careful about their mathematical senses, the definitions of “topology” and “boundary“ I have in mind can … Continue reading

Differential Logic • Comment 2

Re: Laws Of Form Discussion • JB As always, we have to distinguish between the diagram itself, the representation or sign inscribed in some medium, and the formal object it represents under a given interpretation. A venn diagram is an … Continue reading

Peirce’s 1903 Lowell Lectures • Comment 10

Re: Peirce List Discussion • John Sowa JFS: In the Lowell Lectures [1903] Peirce defined the Sheet of Assertion as the representation of a universe that was constructed during a discourse between Graphist and Grapheus. But that is just one … Continue reading

Peirce’s 1903 Lowell Lectures • Comment 9

Re: Peirce List Discussion • JFS JFS: In 1911, Peirce clarified [the] issues by using two distinct terms:  ‘the universe’ and ‘a sheet of paper’.  The sheet is no longer identified with the universe, and there is no reason why one couldn’t or … Continue reading

Peirce’s 1903 Lowell Lectures • Comment 8

Cf: Laws Of Form Discussion • JA Re: Laws Of Form Discussion • JB Re: Peirce List Discussion • JA Many aspects of Peirce’s alpha graphs can be clarified by seeing how they relate to the corresponding Venn diagrams. In … Continue reading

Peirce’s 1903 Lowell Lectures • Comment 6

Cf: Laws Of Form Discussion • JA Continuing discussion of the conditional form, as expressed in Peirce’s logical graphs under the existential interpretation, incited me to cite one of my own essays on the subject. Re: Peirce List Discussions • … Continue reading
