Types of Reasoning in C.S. Peirce and Aristotle • 1

Re: Peirce List Discussion In one of his earliest treatments of the three types of reasoning, from his Harvard Lectures “On the Logic of Science” (1865), Peirce gives an example that illustrates how one and the same proposition might be … Continue reading

Figure 2. An Elementary Sign Relation Re: Peirce List Discussion • Jerry Chandler It is above all important to understand that Peirce’s concept of a sign relation is defined at a higher order of abstraction than any notion of causal … Continue reading

Figure 3. Aspects of a Sign Relation Re: Peirce List Discussion • Kirsti Määttänen One of the chief advantages of Peirce’s systems of logical graphs, entitative and existential, is the way they escape the bounds of 1-dimensional syntax and thus make … Continue reading

Figure 2. An Elementary Sign Relation Re: Peirce List Discussion • Gary Fuhrman Peirce’s existential graphs are a general calculus for expressing the same subject matter as his logic of relative terms and thus they serve to represent the structures … Continue reading

Figure 2. An Elementary Sign Relation Re: Peirce List Discussion • Jon Awbrey • John Collier I strongly agree, Jon.  Reading meaning into artefacts of the representation is not typically transparent.  I would say that the whole symbol represents the … Continue reading
