Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3596)


C. S. Peirce’s research into a possible applied science of whatever might be trichotomically analyzed has here been developed as trikonic – that is, diagrammatic trichotomic. Such a science (and its proposed adjunct tool) may have significant implications for the work of testbed collaboratories and other virtual communities concerned with pragmatically directed inquiry and knowledge representation.
