Survey of Relation Theory • 3

In this Survey of previous 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 … Continue reading

Relations & Their Relatives : 20

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Helmut Raulien We have been considering special properties that a dyadic relation may have, in particular, the following two symmetry properties. A dyadic relation is symmetric if being in implies that is in A dyadic relation … Continue reading

Relations & Their Relatives : 19

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Helmut Raulien I would not want the dyadic case to detain us too long, as often happens when we frame a simple example for the purpose of illustration and then fail to rise beyond it. … Continue reading

Relations & Their Relatives : 18

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Helmut Raulien The immediate task is to get clear about the critical relationship between relations as sets and elementary relations as elements of those sets.  What’s at stake is understanding the extensional aspect of relations.  … Continue reading

Relations & Their Relatives : 17

Re: Peirce List Discussion • GF • JBD • HR I think a few people are making this harder than it needs to be. Let’s put aside potential subtleties about elementary vs. individual vs. infinitesimal relatives and simply use “elementary … Continue reading

Relations & Their Relatives : 16

Re: Peirce List Discussions • (1) • (2) First off, we need to be clear about the difference between objects and signs: Relations are formal objects of discussion and thought while relative terms are signs employed to denote relations.  (The … Continue reading
