Inquiry Driven Systems • Comment 4

Re: Ontolog Forum • MW In the systems approach to inquiry I’ve been pursuing, all specifications, state descriptions, or values of variables come in three modalities:  expected, intended, and actually observed. A difference between expectation and observation is accounted as … Continue reading

Constraints and Indications : 2

Re: Ontolog Forum • JS Coping with collaboration, communication, context, integration, interoperability, perspective, purpose, and the reality of the information dimension demands a transition from conceptual environments bounded by dyadic relations to those informed by triadic relations, especially the variety … Continue reading

Theme One • A Program Of Inquiry : 5

Re: Laws Of Form Discussion • BL I started learning programming about the same time I first ran across C.S. Peirce’s Logical Graphs and Spencer Brown’s Laws of Form in the late 60s and naturally tried each new language and each new … Continue reading
