Charles Sanders Peirce, George Spencer Brown, and Me • 16

Re: Conceptual Graphs • Gary Zhu GZ: I’m quite confused on why people are interested in Laws of Form. What is LOF trying to do? Is it just rewriting logic or is there something more fundamental. e.g. a universal algebraic … Continue reading

Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • Comment 2

Re: Differential Logic, Dynamic Systems, Tangent Functors • 1 Seeing as how quasi-neural models and the recurring issues of symbolic vs. connectionist paradigms have come round again, I thought I might revisit work I began initially in that context, investigating … Continue reading

All Liar, No Paradox • Discussion 2

Re: Laws of Form • James Bowery • John Mingers Dear James, John, et al. The questions arising in the present discussion take us back to the question of what we are using logical values like and for, which takes … Continue reading

All Liar, No Paradox • Discussion 1

Re: Laws of Form • John Mingers JM: Several people have referred recently to the idea that Laws of Form, and particularly Chapter 11 with imaginary logical values, provides an answer to the problems Russell found in Principia Mathematica leading to … Continue reading

Logical Graphs, Iconicity, Interpretation • Discussion 1

Re: Logical Graphs, Iconicity, Interpretation • 1 Re: Laws of Form • John Mingers JM: I’m impressed that you have read Ricoeur — my impression is that Americans don’t have much time for Continental philosophy (a huge generalisation of course). … Continue reading

Logical Graphs, Iconicity, Interpretation • 2

In the first place there are likenesses or copies — such as statues, pictures, emblems, hieroglyphics, and the like.  Such representations stand for their objects only so far as they have an actual resemblance to them — that is agree … Continue reading

Logical Graphs, Iconicity, Interpretation • 1

If exegesis raised a hermeneutic problem, that is, a problem of interpretation, it is because every reading of a text always takes place within a community, a tradition, or a living current of thought, all of which display presuppositions and … Continue reading

Animated Logical Graphs • 81

Re: R.J. Lipton and K.W. Regan • A Negative Comment On Negations Minsky and Papert’s Perceptrons was the work that nudged me over the line from gestalt psychology, psychophysics, relational biology, etc. and made me believe AI could fly.  I later … Continue reading
