About the Series: How to Define the Word "Religion" and Related Primers
This seminar course consists in How to Define the Word “Religion” plus the first 10 primers. The category-based nested form is developed and used to explain the meaning, presence and message underlying the word “religion”. The primers frame sensible and social construction. The primers then further elaborate the model for the presence underlying the word “religion”. They end with intimations of the perspective level of the society tier.

About the Series: Peirce's Secondness and Aristotle's Hylomorphism
“Hyle” means “matter”. “Morphe” means “form”. According to Aristotle, matter and form are two real, yet contiguous, elements.
C. S. Peirce defines the category of secondness as two contiguous real elements. The category of secondness is the realm of actuality. Actuality participates in the category-based nested form.
This series builds on two primers.
The first is A Primer on the Category-Based Nested Form.
The second is A Primer on Sensible and Social Construction.
A hypothesis unfolds.
Aristotle’s hylomorphism and Peirce’s secondness cohere.
The word, “substance”, may expand to include “the contiguity between two real elements”.
In this definition, Peirce’s postmodernism and Aristotle’s premodernism begin to speak to one another.
These commentaries are conversations.
As for high-school and college education, the above primers, along with six commentaries, constitutes a short course. Read both the original and the commentary.
