Animated Logical Graphs • 81

Re: R.J. Lipton and K.W. Regan • A Negative Comment On Negations Minsky and Papert’s Perceptrons was the work that nudged me over the line from gestalt psychology, psychophysics, relational biology, etc. and made me believe AI could fly.  I later … Continue reading

Relations & Their Relatives • Review 1

Peirce’s notation for elementary relatives was illustrated earlier by a dyadic relation from number theory, namely for being a divisor of Cf: Relations & Their Relatives • 3 Table 1 shows the first few ordered pairs of the relation on positive … Continue reading

Relations & Their Relatives • Comment 3

Here’s a couple of selections from Peirce’s 1870 Logic of Relatives bearing on the proper use of individuals in mathematics, and thus on the choice between nominal thinking and real thinking. 😸 Mathematical Demonstration & the Doctrine of Individuals • … Continue reading

Relations & Their Relatives • Comment 2

Before I forget how I got myself into this particular briar patch — I mean the immediate occasion, not the long ago straying from the beaten path — it was largely in discussions with Henry Story where he speaks of … Continue reading

Descriptive and Normative • Discussion 1

Re: Logical Graphs • Discussion 3 Re: Laws of Form • John Mingers JM: I hesitate to enter into this debate but I would want to draw different distinctions to normative/descriptive. I would distinguish (following philosopher Roy Bhaskar) between the … Continue reading

Relations & Their Relatives • Comment 1

I opened a topic on Relation Theory in the Logic stream of Category Theory Zulipchat to discuss the logic of relative terms and the mathematics of relations as they develop from Peirce’s first breakthroughs (1865–1870).  As I have mentioned on … Continue reading

Logical Graphs • Discussion 4

Re: Category Theory • Henry Story HS: Evan Patterson’s “Knowledge Representation in Bicategories of Relations” is also drawn up in terms of string diagrams, as a way of explaining the W3C RDF and OWL standards.  So it looks like we … Continue reading
