Re: Peirce List • Tom Gollier At this point in our paper, Sue and I had already introduced the rudiments of sign relations, as far as the common notions and continuities of thought underpinning the semiotic bridge from Aristotle to … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • Tom Gollier Let me dispel any notion that “the interpretant introduces the person as part of the object-sign-interpretant structure”.  We may have left it implicit or unclear in the text but the lower case “i” and … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • Jerry Chandler The simple question arises:  If an abductive step is taken by the inquirer, then what? A very good question.  Susan Awbrey and I tried our hands at answering the What Next? question in the … Continue reading

Abduction, Deduction, Induction, Analogy, Inquiry • 15

A couple of phrases have stuck in my mind from my earliest days of reading about abductive inference and hypothesis formation.  One has to do with the puzzle of “giving a rule to abduction” and the other alludes to “the reticular … Continue reading
