Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 8

Re: Systems Science • Len Troncale It’s been a while since I started this thread, with many sidetrips and tangents, so let me go back to the top and expand on the motivations I expressed there, addressing a few issues … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 7

Re: Systems Science • JS Let’s stand back from the picture and see how the dimensions of syntax, semantics, and pragmatics look from a pragmatic semiotic or sign relational perspective. is an object domain, a set of elements under view … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 6

Re: Systems Science • JS A few of my readers are racing well ahead of me, exploring a range of different roads, but I’ll be making a dogged effort to stick to my math-bio-graphical narrative this time around, and try … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 5

Re: Systems Science • JS Yes, all these strands are strongly entangled. I had already spent a full decade wrestling with the works of Charles Sanders Peirce and George Spencer Brown before my need to figure out what they were … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 4

Re: Systems Science • LT To clarify my previous remark about General Systems Theory, I wasn’t trying to define a whole field but merely to describe my experience in forums like these, where it took me a while to realize … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 3

Re: Systems Science • (1) • (2) • (3) Various discussions in various places bring back to mind this thread from early this fall, prompting me to make a try at continuing it.  Here’s a series of blog posts where … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 2

Re: Cybernetic Communications • SU One thing that interests me here is the relation between narratives and navigation.  Navigation has to do with how we move through actual state spaces while narratives are the tales we tell about past adventures … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Discussion 1

Re: Cybernetic Communications • Analyzing Differences of Perceptions/Constructions Susan and I just returned from our annual dramatic immersion in Stratford Ontario and the last play we saw was a playfully dramatic rendition of Milton’s Paradise Lost.  That and the spectacular … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • 1

People interested in category theory as applied to systems may wish to check out the following article, reporting work I carried out while engaged in a systems engineering program at Oakland University. The problem addressed is a longstanding one, that … Continue reading

Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry : 1

Here are several excursions I made into the subjects of Abduction, Deduction, Induction, and Analogy, comparing Peirce’s first formulations with those in Aristotle and focusing on the ways these patterns of inference fit into the Cycle of Inquiry.  Much of … Continue reading
