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

Readings On Determination • Discussion 3

Re: Readings On Determination • 1 I keep coming back to Peirce’s early lectures on the logic of science because we see there the first inklings of his prospective theory of information, one of those ideas whose time was ripe … Continue reading

Readings On Determination • 1

The concepts of definition and determination converge in their concern for setting bounds to the point where they coincide at a certain level of abstraction.  One avenue of approach to determination may then begin from a consideration of definition. The moment, then, … Continue reading

Readings On Determination

This is an anchor post for a set of readings on determination, focusing on the census of senses Peirce employed in his pragmatic approach to information, inquiry, science, and signs with a pinch of readings from other writers for historical … Continue reading
