Survey of Semiotic Theory Of Information • 2

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 Cosmos • 1

Re: Michael Harris • Not About Fibonacci I have often reflected on the interminglings of the main three normative sciences.  In one of my earliest meditations I saw Beauty, Goodness, and Truth as the intersecting circles of a Venn diagram, with the … Continue reading

Figure 3. Aspects of a Sign Relation Re: Peirce List Discussion • Kirsti Määttänen One of the chief advantages of Peirce’s systems of logical graphs, entitative and existential, is the way they escape the bounds of 1-dimensional syntax and thus make … Continue reading
