Re: Peirce List • Jon Alan Schmidt Peirce’s categories are best viewed as categories of relations.  To a first approximation, firstness, secondness, thirdness are simply what all monadic, dyadic, triadic relations, respectively, have in common.  At a second approximation, we … Continue reading

Re: Peirce List • Jerry Rhee • Tom Gollier • Edwina Taborsky Given a working hypothesis, as abduced in the previous post, the next phase of inquiry uses deductive inference to expand the implied consequences of the abductive hypothesis, with … Continue reading

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
