Re: Laws of Form • William Bricken WB: Kauffman’s 2001 piece on “Peirce” (title is “The Mathematics of Charles Sanders Peirce” [PDF]) is IMO fundamental to this discussion. Here’s a brief excerpt from a piece I did in 2005: “Boundary Logic and … Continue reading

Re: Laws of Form • Dirk Baecker DB: I guess you know Fernando Zalamea’s work on Peirce.  He thinks that all of GSB’s important ideas are already in Peirce’s Existential Graphs. I think he may be right, but then there … Continue reading

Re: Laws of Form • Dirk Baecker DB: Thanks to James Bowery for inviting me to this group.  Maybe it is not exactly what I am looking for, since I am interested in a sociological reading of LoF.  Which means … Continue reading

Much of the work I do on the C.S. Peirce/Spencer Brown approach to “mathematical hypostases underlying logic” now goes under the heading of Animated Logical Graphs.  There’s a Survey of related resources I update from time to time at the … Continue reading

There’s a new Laws of Form group in town.  James Bowery et al. have just revived the earlier group on a new platform and everything looks pretty handy so far.  There’s an honest-to-goodness 60s vibe about it for me since … Continue reading
