Sign Relational Manifolds • Discussion 3

Re: FB | Paradoxology • Alex Shkotin   AS: I see — “sign relation” is a special term for triadic relations of some kind (with some properties);  like this:  thing in first position and thing in second position must refer … Continue reading

Sign Relational Manifolds • Discussion 2

Re: FB | Paradoxology • Alex Shkotin   AS: Not on a narrow topic, but maybe you have a desire to answer. Hypothesis.  Any material something can be a sign. Is it possible to give an example of something material … Continue reading

Sign Relational Manifolds • 5

Let me try to say in intuitive terms what I think is really going on here. The problem we face is as old as the problem of other minds, or intersubjectivity, or even commensurability, and it naturally involves a whole … Continue reading

Another set of notes I found on this theme strikes me as getting to the point more quickly and though they read a little rough in places I think it may be worth the effort to fill out their general … Continue reading

Sign Relational Manifolds • 3

I’m not sure when it was I first noticed the relationship between manifolds and semiotics but I distinctly recall the passage in Serge Lang’s Differential and Riemannian Manifolds which brought the triadic character of tangent vectors into high relief.  I … Continue reading

Sign Relational Manifolds • 2

A sense of how manifolds are applied in practice may be gleaned from the set of excerpts linked below, from Doolin and Martin (1990), Introduction to Differential Geometry for Engineers, which I used in discussing differentiable manifolds with other participants … Continue reading

Sign Relational Manifolds • 1

Riemann’s concept of a manifold, especially as later developed, bears a close relationship to Peirce’s concept of a sign relation. I will have to wait for my present train of thought to stop at a station before I can hop … Continue reading
