The Present Is Big With The Future • Comment 2

Re: Facebook Discussion • John Barclay-Morton My interest in this theme of Leibniz goes back to a time when I began exploring generalized measures of determination and qualitative analogues of differential calculus — doctrines of absolute determinism or predestination had … Continue reading

The Present Is Big With The Future • Comment 1

Re: Peirce List Discussion • John Sowa Here is a passage from Leibniz where he half encrypts half decrypts the big idea sparking his discovery of the differential calculus. Now that I have proved sufficiently that everything comes to pass … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • ET • JFS • JA • JBD Let me see if I can get back in the saddle on this topic, the dormitive virtues of tryptophan and a few pounds added notwithstanding. I was addressing … Continue reading

And the founder, having shod a plough with a brazen ploughshare, and having yoked to it a bull and a cow, himself drove a deep furrow round the boundary lines, while those who followed after him had to turn the … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • JFS • JA JA: Trying to understand inquiry and semiosis in general as temporal processes is one of the things that forced me to develop differential logic as an extension of propositional logic, for which … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • JBD • JA • JA Topology is the most general study of geometric space.  It is critical here to get beyond the “popular” accounts and learn the basics from a real math book.  A classic … Continue reading
