Animated Logical Graphs • 33

A reader’s request for more examples of animated logical graphs prompted me to look again at the User Guide for my Theme One Program, whose exposition develops a series of logical graphs increasing in complexity from extremely simple to more substantial … Continue reading

Relation Theory • Discussion 1

Re: Cybernetics • Arthur Phillips Responding to what I’ll abductively interpret as a plea for relevance from the cybernetic galley, let me give a quick review of where we are in this many-oared expedition. Our reading of Ashby (see Survey … Continue reading

Survey of Relation Theory • 4

In this Survey of blog and wiki posts on Relation Theory, relations are viewed from the perspective of combinatorics, in other words, as a topic in discrete mathematics, with special attention to finite structures and concrete set-theoretic constructions, many of … Continue reading

Peirce’s 1870 “Logic Of Relatives” • Discussion 2

Re: Ecology of Systems Thinking • RS • TM My previous comment summed up my observations of a general drift toward “absolutist and dyadic ways of thinking” in various communities of inquiry of interest to me over the past 20 … Continue reading

Peirce’s 1870 “Logic Of Relatives” • Comment 2

In a recent post on a related topic I gave this assessment of our present situation: One of the more disconcerting developments, I might say “devolutions”, I’ve observed over the past 20 years has been the general slippage back to … Continue reading

Peirce’s 1870 “Logic Of Relatives” • Comment 1

Peirce often stressed his Logic of Relatives as the key to unlocking many puzzles.  As I read him, it was Peirce’s drive to understand the Logic of Science that required the grounding of logic in the mathematical forms of triadic … Continue reading

Peirce’s 1870 “Logic Of Relatives” • Overview

My long ago encounter with Peirce’s 1870 paper, “Description of a Notation for the Logic of Relatives, Resulting from an Amplification of the Conceptions of Boole’s Calculus of Logic”, was one of the events precipitating my return from the hazier … Continue reading
