Riddles, Legal Decisions, and Peirce’s “Existential Graphs”
As the title suggests, Peirce’s existential graphs, legal decisions, and riddles are members of a relationship that has not been examined from the perspective of semiotics. It is a relationship that, at first glance, seems to resemble Lewis Carroll’s conjunct, “cabbages and kings.” And, like the walrus, this chapter discusses paradox, nonsense, and incongruity in a significant way as they relate to legal semiotics.
