Survey of Definition and Determination • 1

In the early 1990s, “in the middle of life’s journey” as the saying goes, I returned to grad school in a systems engineering program with the idea of taking a more systems-theoretic approach to my development of Peircean themes, from … Continue reading

Readings On Determination • Discussion 4

Re: Peirce List • Gary Fuhrman Determination, along with the related concepts of constraint, definition, form, structure, etc., are subjects of recurring discussion.  Here are links to readings I collected back when I began approaching inference, information, inquiry, logic, sign processes, … 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

Indicator Functions • Discussion 1

Peter Smith, on his Logic Matters blog, asks the question, “What Is A Predicate?”, and considers a number of answers. There are of course other possible answers, and one I learned quite early on, arising very naturally in applying mathematical … Continue reading

Constraints and Indications : 2

Re: Ontolog Forum • Joseph Simpson Coping with collaboration, communication, context, integration, interoperability, perspective, purpose, and the reality of the information dimension demands a transition from conceptual environments bounded by dyadic relations to those informed by triadic relations, especially the … Continue reading

Definition and Determination • 17

Re: Ontolog Forum • Richard McCullough RM:  We clearly have some differences in the “definition” of “definition”. I suppose it all depends on the sorts of things one wants to define, something we might call the context of application.  I am … Continue reading

Definition and Determination • 16

Re: Ontolog Forum • Richard McCullough RM:  What is your view of definitions? A recurring question, always worth some thought, so I added my earlier comment to a long-running series on my blog concerned with Definition and Determination. Survey of Definition … Continue reading

Definition and Determination • 15

Re: Ontolog Forum • Richard McCullough In some early math course I learned a fourfold scheme of Primitives (undefined terms), Definitions, Axioms, and Inference Rules.  But later excursions tended to run the axioms and definitions together, speaking for example of … Continue reading
