Re: Peirce List Discussion • Helmut Raulien Cf: Relation Reduction : Examples of Projectively Reducible Relations I constructed the “Ann and Bob” examples of sign relations back when I was enrolled in a Systems Engineering program and had to explain … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Helmut Raulien The facts about relational reducibility are relatively easy to understand and I included links to relevant discussions in my earlier survey of relation theory. The following article discusses relational reducibility and irreducibility in … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Jeffrey Brian Downard In viewing the structures of relation spaces, even the smallest dyadic cases we’ve been exploring so far, no one need feel nonplussed at the lack of obviousness in this domain.  Anyone who … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Jeffrey Brian Downard In discussing the “combinatorial explosion” of dyadic relations that takes off in passing from a universe of two elements to a universe of three elements, I made the following observation: Looking back … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Jim Willgoose Here is the series of blog posts on Chapter 3 (The Logic of Relatives) from Peirce’s 1880 “Algebra of Logic” up to the point where I left off on May Day. Preliminaries Selections … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Helmut Raulien In discussing Peirce’s concept of a triadic sign relation as existing among objects, signs, and interpretant signs the question arises whether any of the classes so related are classes by themselves, that is, … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Howard Pattee At this point we can distinguish two forms of decomposability or reducibility — along with their corresponding negations, indecomposability or irreducibility – that commonly arise. Reducibility under relational composition All triadic relations are … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Howard Pattee We use this or that species of diagrams to represent a fraction of the properties, hardly ever all the properties, of the objects in an object domain.  The diagrams that Peirce developed to … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List Discussion • Edwina Taborsky • Howard Pattee In the best mathematical terms, a triadic relation is a cartesian product of three sets together with a specified subset of that cartesian product. Alternatively, one may think of a … Continue reading
