Re: Cybernetic Communications • SU One thing that interests me here is the relation between narratives and navigation.  Navigation has to do with how we move through actual state spaces while narratives are the tales we tell about past adventures … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 1

Re: Cybernetic Communications • Analyzing Differences of Perceptions/Constructions Susan and I just returned from our annual dramatic immersion in Stratford Ontario and the last play we saw was a playfully dramatic rendition of Milton’s Paradise Lost.  That and the spectacular … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • 1

People interested in category theory as applied to systems may wish to check out the following article, reporting work I carried out while engaged in a systems engineering program at Oakland University. The problem addressed is a longstanding one, that … Continue reading

Survey of Semiotic Theory Of Information • 3

This is a Survey of previous blog and wiki posts on the Semiotic Theory Of Information.  All my projects are exploratory in essence but this line of inquiry is more open-ended than most.  The question is: What is information and how … Continue reading

Sign Relations, Triadic Relations, Relations • 11

Re: Ontolog Forum • RavS In pursuing applications of pragmatic semiotics to scientific research the following distinctions are critical. We have the relational roles known as Object, Sign, and Interpretant Sign.  These are places or roles a thing may occupy … Continue reading

Inquiry Driven Systems • Comment 5

Re: Ontolog Forum • Bruce Schuman I would call that the pragmatic-semiotic point of view and not find anything shocking in it. One can find earlier foreshadowings — Plato’s Cratylus and the Stoic lekton are often mentioned in this connection … Continue reading
