  • Semiotics: An Introduction (6:00-6:45pm ET).  The second discussion of the week for the Semiotics seminar–how do signs shape our thinking?  In what manner does the vehicle affect the interpretant, and how does the interpretant regard the object?  How are we to classify the signs we use?  These are open-ended questions, to which Peirce gives us guidance but no final resolutions..

  • Seminar Discussion Sessions: Week 7 of 8.
    • ​​​​​​​Science: Aristotle’s Organon (1-2pm ET).  Diving into book II of the Posterior Analytics, we progress to a consideration of the method of scientific examination itself.  Here, we will see how important is the middle term in attaining demonstrations of a properly scientific kind.
    • Semiotics: An Introduction (3-4pm ET).  What do we mean by “reality”?  Or “belief”?  How are they related to “truth”?  These are our questions this week: and here, pulling together some of the varied threads we have seen in the previous weeks, we will see how the right understanding of signs can lead us from thought to truth itself: and all the benefits thereof.
    • Thomistic Psychology: World and Passions (5-6pm ET).  Anger–rage–hatred.  They are emotions familiar to us today, confronted as we are with a media panopticon of injustices and the suggestion that we are victims somehow.  But is this the right and fitting purpose of anger?  Or does it have some role to play, a more important role, in the pursuit not of vaguely-articulated rights, but rather in the rectifying of our pursuit of the true good?
