Charles Sanders Peirce - A Collection of Threes


Threes contain monads and dyads

Triads for thought
Beat Binary
Triangles being infinitely expandable 

The first is the vague and undefinable reality
The second somehow modifies and adds to the first
The third brings the first and second to a point of action 
actuality manifestation hypothesis experiment 
Peirce's is a progressive evolutionary realistic philosophy

ADDENDUM

Here is a list of the triads in seqoential lines


1 Quality 2 Relation 3  Representation
Icons  Indices Symbols
Terms Propositions Arguments
Hypothesis (Abduction)  Induction  Deduction 
Sign  Object  Interpretant
Speculative Grammar Critic  Methodeutic
Phenomenology  Normative Science  Metaphysics
Aesthetics  Ethics Logic
Feeling-qualities  Sense of reaction  Sense of generalization
Mind  Matter Evolution
Chance  Law Habit-taking
Firstness  Secondness Thirdness
Idea  Brute Actuality The sign's soul

And as firsts, seconds and thirds.

FIRSTS

Quality, Icons, Terms, Hypothesis (Abduction). Sign, Speculative grammar, Phenomenology, Aesthetics, Feeling-qualities, Mind, Chance, Firstness, Idea

SECONDS

Relation, Indices, Propositions, Induction, Object, Critic, Normative Science, Ethics, Sense of reaction, Matter, Law, Secondness, Actuality
 
THIRDS

Representation, Symbols, Arguments, Deduction, Interpretant, Methodeutic, Metaphysics, Logic, Sense of generalization, Evolution, Habit-taking, Thirdness, The sign's soul

NOTE

In some respects this last is the most useful as it easily enables one to select firsts, seconds and thirds in any order - for example Sign, Proposition, Generalization or Aesthetics, Actuality, Habit-taking. Each cluster suggests firstness, secondness and thirdness.
