Comments on Brian Kemple’s Essay (2020) "Signs and Reality"

In 2020, Brian Kemple publishes an article in Reality: A Journal for Philosophical Discourse. The point is simple. Triadic relations, such as signs, are things. They are real, even though they appear to be contingent upon um... things. Maybe the point is not so simple. These comments use the category-based nested form and other relational models developed within the tradition of C.S. Peirce. More

About the Series: Considerations of Jacques Maritain, John Deely and Thomistic Approaches to the Questions of These Times
Two models are used to appreciate now-forgotten paths stretching from Baroque scholastics to the present day. These models are the triadic structure of judgment and the category-based nested form. Two recent intellects stand out. One is Jacques Maritain. Born in France, he comes to North America around the time of the second world war. He is keenly interested in how to recover a scholastic approach within this world of modern science. Another is John Deely, whose recent death marks the end of a long career as both a Thomist and a semiotician. Deely confronts the philosophers of the day in a very entertaining manner. This series contains comments on articles from journals such as the American Catholic Philosophical Association, Faith and Philosophy, as well as books, including Daniel Novotny's excellent works on the Baroque scholastics. This series is not a course. It is a place to sample ideas. I encourage readers to consider both the original and the comments. They may be read in tandem or in sequence.

About the Series: A Course on Evolution and Thomism
This course is structured to appreciate the transformative potential of Peircean approaches to evolution and to scholastic philosophy. These topics are related. Can scholastic philosophy produce a theology of evolution? The answer is yes, especially when Peirce’s categories come into play. Peirce enlivens and revives scholastic concepts. The course begins with Speculations on Thomism and Evolution and Comments on Dennis Venema and Scot McKnight’s Book (2017) Adam and the Genome (which is to be read along with the comments). Then select four commentaries from this series or its complement, Peirce's Secondness and Aristotle's Hylomorphism, and read with the original articles.
