Sign Relations, Triadic Relations, Relation Theory • Discussion 2

Re: Peirce List • Edwina Taborsky Dear Edwina, Analytic frameworks, our various theories of categories, sets, sorts, and types, have their uses but they tend to become à priori, autonomous, top-down, and top-heavy unless they are supported by a robust population … Continue reading

Sign Relations, Triadic Relations, Relation Theory • 1

To understand how signs work in Peirce’s theory of triadic sign relations, or “semiotics”, we have to understand, in order of increasing generality, sign relations, triadic relations, and relations in general, each as conceived in Peirce’s logic of relative terms … Continue reading
