Survey of Theme One Program • 2

This is a Survey of previous blog and wiki posts on the Theme One Program that I developed all through the 1980s.  The aim of the project was to develop fundamental algorithms and data structures to support an integrated learning … Continue reading

Animated Logical Graphs : 12

Re: Facebook Discussion • MBM I’ve always been fond of picture proofs — it was one of the things that drew me to graph theory, topology, and the logical graphs of C.S. Peirce and Spencer Brown in the first place.  Sue was … Continue reading

Animated Logical Graphs : 11

Re: Richard Coyne • Inside Out Logic Venn diagrams make for very iconic representations of their universes of discourse.  That is one of the main sources of their intuitive utility and also the main source of their logical limitations — … Continue reading

Differential Logic • Comment 3

Re: Laws Of Form Discussion • BL In my previous comment on boundaries in object universes and venn diagrams, and always when I’m being careful about their mathematical senses, the definitions of “topology” and “boundary“ I have in mind can … Continue reading

Differential Logic • Comment 2

Re: Laws Of Form Discussion • JB As always, we have to distinguish between the diagram itself, the representation or sign inscribed in some medium, and the formal object it represents under a given interpretation. A venn diagram is an … Continue reading

Peirce’s 1903 Lowell Lectures • Comment 10

Re: Peirce List Discussion • John Sowa JFS: In the Lowell Lectures [1903] Peirce defined the Sheet of Assertion as the representation of a universe that was constructed during a discourse between Graphist and Grapheus. But that is just one … Continue reading

Peirce’s 1903 Lowell Lectures • Comment 9

Re: Peirce List Discussion • JFS JFS: In 1911, Peirce clarified [the] issues by using two distinct terms:  ‘the universe’ and ‘a sheet of paper’.  The sheet is no longer identified with the universe, and there is no reason why one couldn’t or … Continue reading
