The Commens Dictionary

Quote from ‘A Syllabus of Certain Topics of Logic’


The graph which consists of all the graphs on the sheet of assertion, or which consists of all that are on any one area severed from the sheet, shall be termed the entire graph of the sheet of assertion or of that area, as the case may be. Any part of the entire graph which is itself a graph shall be termed a partial graph of the sheet or of the area on which it is.

Peirce, 1903, p. 16; CP 4.398
