Survey of Pragmatic Semiotic Information • 5

This is a Survey of previous blog and wiki posts on the Semiotic Theory Of Information.  All my projects are exploratory in essence but this line of inquiry is more open-ended than most.  The question is: What is information and how … Continue reading

Pragmatic Semiotic Information • Discussion 20

Re: R.J. Lipton and K.W. Regan • IBM Conference on the Informational Lens A little bit of history recoded … It may be worth noting the Information Revolution in our understanding of science began in the mid 1860s when C.S. Peirce … Continue reading

Survey of Definition and Determination • 1

In the early 1990s, “in the middle of life’s journey” as the saying goes, I returned to grad school in a systems engineering program with the idea of taking a more systems-theoretic approach to my development of Peircean themes, from … Continue reading

Readings On Determination • Discussion 4

Re: Peirce List • Gary Fuhrman Determination, along with the related concepts of constraint, definition, form, structure, etc., are subjects of recurring discussion.  Here are links to readings I collected back when I began approaching inference, information, inquiry, logic, sign processes, … Continue reading

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

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

{ Information = Comprehension × Extension } • Discussion 17

Re: Ontolog Forum • Joseph Simpson We are in the middle of trying to work out what Peirce had in mind with his concept of information.  He appears to have developed it from purely logical considerations, if logic can remain … Continue reading

{ Information = Comprehension × Extension } • Discussion 16

Re: Ontolog Forum • Joseph Simpson To understand the purpose of Peirce’s lecture hall illustrations I think we need to consider how these sorts of expository examples come into being.  Having crafted a few myself the technique is much like … Continue reading

{ Information = Comprehension × Extension } • Discussion 15

I am roughly at the halfway point of my comments on Peirce’s information formula, having just finished up the link between abductive inference and iconic reference.  The discussion of induction and indexicals will follow pretty much the same pattern, though … Continue reading
