Survey of Cybernetics • 1

Again, in a ship, if a man were at liberty to do what he chose, but were devoid of mind and excellence in navigation (αρετης κυβερνητικης), do you perceive what must happen to him and his fellow sailors? Plato • … Continue reading

Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry : 29

Re: Ontolog Forum Questions about Abduction in AI and Computer Science raised in the Ontolog Forum prompted me to look up previous discussions tracing the integral relationship among information, inquiry, and the three types of inference.  Here’s a sample of … Continue reading

Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry : 28

Re: Ontolog Forum • Michael DeBellis • Adrian Walker MDB: I’m currently auditing a fascinating seminar at Berkeley on Semiotics and Information Theory.  Mostly we are focusing on C.S. Peirce although we’ve also explored other theories such as Shannon’s Information Theory.  … Continue reading

Pragmatic Semiotic Information • Discussion 19

Re: Differential Logic and Dynamic Systems Re: FB | Systems Sciences • Kenneth Lloyd An exchange on Facebook took me back to recent discussions of pragmatic truth and long-running discussions of pragmatic semiotic information.  Just by way of a note … Continue reading

Pragmatic Semiotic Information • Discussion 18

Re: Peirce Society Facebook Page • John Corcoran To address Was ist und was soll Information sein? in a Peircean context we need to grasp or at least try to grapple with Peirce’s inklings about information.  As it happens, I’ve … Continue reading

Animated Logical Graphs • 30

The duality between Entitative and Existential interpretations of logical graphs is one example of a mathematical symmetry, in this case a symmetry of order 2.  Symmetries of this and higher orders give us conceptual handles on excess complexities in the … Continue reading
