Sign Relations, Triadic Relations, Relation Theory • Discussion 9

Once, there was nothing there, nothing moving on its own, just data and people shuffling it around.  Then something happened, and it … it knew itself. William Gibson • Count Zero (1) (2) Re: FB | Dan Everett • On … Continue reading

Sign Relations, Triadic Relations, Relation Theory • Discussion 8

Re: FB | Dan Everett • On the Origin of Symbols and the Descent of Signs Continuing a discussion on the primal character of symbols. There are a few passages from Peirce going most quickly to the root of the … Continue reading

Sign Relations, Triadic Relations, Relation Theory • Discussion 6

Re: FB | Charles S. Peirce Society • Alain Létourneau Alain Létourneau asks if I have any thoughts on Peirce’s Rhetoric.  I venture the following. Classically speaking, rhetoric (as distinguished from dialectic) treats forms of argument which “consider the audience” … Continue reading

Charles Sanders Peirce, George Spencer Brown, and Me • 16

Re: Conceptual Graphs • Gary Zhu GZ: I’m quite confused on why people are interested in Laws of Form. What is LOF trying to do? Is it just rewriting logic or is there something more fundamental. e.g. a universal algebraic … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Comment 2

Re: Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • 1 Seeing as how quasi-neural models and the recurring issues of symbolic vs. connectionist paradigms have come round again, I thought I might revisit work I began initially in that context, investigating … Continue reading

Theme One Program • Discussion 5

Re: Peirce List • Jerry Chandler JC: This post [Theme One Program • Motivation 1] is so muddled that I gave up on a meaningful scientific interpretation of it. Dear Jerry, Thanks for the response. I heartily agree with the … Continue reading

Theme One Program • Discussion 4

I’ve been going back and looking again at the problems and questions which nudged me into the computational sphere as a way of building our human capacities for inquiry, learning, and reasoning. One critical issue, you might even say bifurcation … Continue reading
