    1. La concepción del falibilismo de Peirce, la afirmación epistemológica de que podríamos estar equivocados acerca de cualquier afirmación, creencia, o conocimiento particular, está no obstante completamente integrada, como lo está todo su filosofía, en su metafísica. La afirmación sinejísta de que toda la realidad es continua también es ontológica: en su cosmología evolucionista, Peirce ofrece una teoría (o una combinación de la teoría de la evolución darwiniana con una dosis de su teoría de las categorías) de cómo el universo, originariamente compuesto de puro azar, evoluciona hacia pura racionalidad: (...) en el principio -infinitamente lejano- había un caos de sentimiento no personalizado, que al estar sin conexión ni regularidad, se encontraría propiamente sin existencia. Este sentimiento, mutando aquí y allá en pura arbitrariedad habría originado el germen de una tendencia generalizante. Sus otras manifestaciones serían evanescentes, pero ésta tendría la virtud del crecimiento. Así pues, se habría iniciado la tendencia al hábito, y a partir de esto, junto con los otros principios de la evolución, se habrían desarrollado todas las regularidades del universo. En todo momento, sin embargo, sobrevive un elemento de puro azar y éste permanecerá hasta que el mundo se convierta en un sistema absolutamente perfecto, racional y simétrico, en el que la mente, por fin, será cristalizada en el futuro infinitamente distante. (CP 6.36, 1892)

      En última instancia es el falibilismo que ad lugar a una cuestión ontológica y episémiica, principalmente pluralista

    1. they suggest that the use of symbols to model the world developed rapidly between about 20,000 and 10,000 years ago, and has the effect of giving emphasis to analytic thought as the dominant mode of human consciousness. Rather than seeing symbols as the impetus for human logic, they argue for presymbolic elements of logic in Peirce’s sign categories shared widely by humans and other animals.

      !- explanation : language - instead of arguing for the power of symbols, they argue for the power of presymbolic elements of logic as per Charles Saunder Peirce's sign categories

    2. It is terrible to seehow a single unclear idea, a single formula without meaning, lurking in a young man's head, willsometimes act like an obstruction of inert matter in an artery, hindering the nutrition of the brain,and condemning its victim to pine away in the fullness of his intellectual vigor and in the midst ofintellectual plenty.
    1. Beatrice Webb, the famous sociologist and political activist, reported in 1926: "'Every one agrees nowadays', observe the most noted French writers on the study of history, 'that it is advisable to collect materials on separate cards or slips of paper. . . . The advantages of this artifice are obvious; the detachability of the slips enables us to group them at will in a host of different combinations; if necessary, to change their places; it is easy to bring texts of the same kind together, and to incorporate additions, as they are acquired, in the interior of the groups to which they belong.'" [6]


      Webb 1926, p. 363. The number of scholars who have used the index card method is legion, especially in sociology and anthropology, but also in many other subjects. Claude Lévy-Strauss learned their use from Marcel Mauss and others, Roland Barthes used them, Charles Sanders Peirce relied on them, and William Van Orman Quine wrote his lectures on them, etc.

    1. There's no inherent meaning in information. It's what we do with that information that matters.

      This is a profound statement that needs to be fully explored. This touches upon the theory of Charles Saunders Peirce and his Semiotics, as well as Jakob Von Uexkull and his Umwelt theory. Information becomes meaningful within an evolutionary framing of fitness.

    1. When this student talks about the value of "showing up to something alive

      Sounds like C.S. Peirce's energetic interpretant

    2. "In my class I want students to daydream. They can go back to the text if they missed a key fact. But if they went off in thought … they might be making the private connection that pulls the course together for them."

      This has some connection to C.S. Peirce's interpretants

      To jump on Kevin's earlier "Peirce bandwagon" (also learned from Juliana Chow) the search for mutual connection and understanding reminds me of this concept that Peirce calls the "commens" or the "commind." Essentially, there are three parts necessary for "signifying" something. You need an object, a sign, and an interpretant for both. Now, if the interpretant wishes to share the meaning of the sign and object with another interpretant, they must reach a level of shared context/culture/consciousness that Peirce calls the "commens." Basically it seems like Locke would agree with the theoretical model that Peirce laid out.
