Sign Relations • Dyadic Aspects

For an arbitrary triadic relation whether it is a sign relation or not, there are six dyadic relations obtained by projecting on one of the planes of the -space   The six dyadic projections of a triadic relation are defined … Continue reading

Sign Relations • Examples

Because the examples to follow have been artificially constructed to be as simple as possible, their detailed elaboration can run the risk of trivializing the whole theory of sign relations.  Despite their simplicity, however, these examples have subtleties of their … Continue reading

Re: Sign Relations • Discussion 4 Re: Peirce List • Gary Fuhrman • Jon Alan Schmidt The transformative idea in Peirce’s case of the French interpreter is not the convertibility of term logic, propositional logic, and monadic predicate logic — … Continue reading

Sign Relations • Discussion 4

Re: Peirce List • Edwina Taborsky A note on a couple of recurring themes may be useful at this point. Peirce’s “metaphorical argument” for transforming discussion of interpretive agents, whether individuals or communities, to discussion of interpretant signs is as … Continue reading

Re: Sign Relations • Definition Re: Ontolog Forum • Alex Shkotin (1) (2) Regarding Peirce’s definition of a sign linked above, Alex Shkotin writes: A Sign is unusually active in Peirce’s definition: A (a sign) brings B (interpretant sign) into … Continue reading

Sign Relations • Signs and Inquiry

There is a close relationship between the pragmatic theory of signs and the pragmatic theory of inquiry.  In fact, the correspondence between the two studies exhibits so many congruences and parallels that it is often best to treat them as … Continue reading

Re: Cybernetics • Bernard C.E. Scott Re: Sign Relations • Definition Regarding Peirce’s definition of a sign given in the previous post, Bernard Scott writes: It is very helpful [to] distinguish Peirce’s formal semiotic (his logic) from psychological, and by … Continue reading

Sign Relations • Definition

One of Peirce’s clearest and most complete definitions of a sign is one he gives in the context of providing a definition for logic, and so it is informative to view it in that setting. Logic will here be defined … Continue reading

Triadic Relations • Discussion 2

To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven: A time for building castles in the stratosphere, A time to mind the anti-gravs that keep us here. Re: Systems Science • Rob Young Cf: Conceptual Barriers … Continue reading
