Triadic forms, structures and representations in the work of Peirce (1839-1914) :
a mathematical/philosophical/semiotic/physi(ologi)cal network
of networks of knowledge.


Fernando Zalamea,
Professor, Mathematics Department, National University of Colombia.

Wednesday 16 October 2013,
15:00, University Paris Diderot

We will first present on overview of Peirce’s ideas on triadicity and continuity, with many examples from mathematics, phenomenology, logic, semiotics, forms of reasonning, classification of sciences. We will then take a look to Peirce’s continuum, with its characteristic properties (reflexivity, supermultitude, modality) that depart from other founding conceptions (Cantor, Brower), and we will present a new model for Peirce’s continuum (Vargas 2013). Finally, we will go over his existential graphs, seen as a profound form of topological logic, unveiling the archetypes of reasoning, unifying connectors and quantifiers, and we will present another model for intuitionistic existential graphs.
