Peirce’s 1870 “Logic of Relatives” • Discussion 3

All other sciences without exception depend upon the principles of mathematics;  and mathematics borrows nothing from them but hints. C.S. Peirce • “Logic of Number” A principal intention of this essay is to separate what are known as algebras of … Continue reading
