Light Signifying Form: Peirce on creativity, responsiveness and emergence in quantum, biological and linguistic systems

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Using Peirce as a guide, this paper explores the way in which light mediates finitude through the relational process of semiosis. Embodying the triadic logic of identity, difference and return, light creates space, time and matter. Attention is on simple bodily forms and the meta-physics of their relationality. The first section introduces the mathematical and metaphysical contours of Peirce’s approach. The second section motivates Peirce’s three categories as interwoven process. In the third section, Peirce’s formalism of the sign is presented and applied to simple physical and biological bodies.
