Re: John Baez • Cyclic Identity for Partial Derivatives • Maxwell’s Relations (1) (2) (3) Much fun can be had by trying to do differentials and partial differentials over the boolean domain instead of the reals I took a first whack … Continue reading

Cf: Category Theory • Jon Awbrey I opened a topic in the “logic” stream of “category theory.zulipchat” to discuss differential logic in a category theoretic environment and began by linking a few basic resources. The topic on logical graphs introduced … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • John Sowa : “Modal Logic Is An Immense Swamp” Dear John, Best title I’ve read in a long time!  But the really immense swamp critter here is the Naturally Evolved Organon known as ornery natural language which … Continue reading

## Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 9

Re: FB | Systems Sciences • Kenneth Lloyd Dear Kenneth, Mulling over recent discussions put me in a pensive frame of mind and my thoughts led me back to my first encounter with category theory.  I came across the term … Continue reading

Re: Cybernetic Communications • Stephen Paul King SPK: Is it possible that beliefs can propagate almost completely contrary to facts, seen by those that are not infected with those beliefs? Can we have complex waves in the domains of binary truth … Continue reading

## Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 8

Re: Systems Science • Len Troncale It’s been a while since I started this thread, with many sidetrips and tangents, so let me go back to the top and expand on the motivations I expressed there, addressing a few issues … Continue reading

## Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 7

Re: Systems Science • JS Let’s stand back from the picture and see how the dimensions of syntax, semantics, and pragmatics look from a pragmatic semiotic or sign relational perspective. is an object domain, a set of elements under view … Continue reading

## Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 6

Re: Systems Science • JS A few of my readers are racing well ahead of me, exploring a range of different roads, but I’ll be making a dogged effort to stick to my math-bio-graphical narrative this time around, and try … Continue reading

## Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 5

Re: Systems Science • JS Yes, all these strands are strongly entangled. I had already spent a full decade wrestling with the works of Charles Sanders Peirce and George Spencer Brown before my need to figure out what they were … Continue reading

## Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 4

Re: Systems Science • LT To clarify my previous remark about General Systems Theory, I wasn’t trying to define a whole field but merely to describe my experience in forums like these, where it took me a while to realize … Continue reading
