# The Commens DictionaryQuote from ‘Logic of Mathematics: An attempt to develop my categories from within’

Quote:

… representation necessarily involves a genuine triad. For it involves a sign, or representamen, of some kind, outward or inward, mediating between an object and an interpreting thought. Now this is neither a matter of fact, since thought is general, nor is it a matter of law, since thought is living.
