Meaning (and what it means)

Doing some background reading today I came across the excellent on-line work of J. F. Sowa (who edited the draft proposed ANSI standard for conceptual graphs):
Categorization in Cognitive Computer Science and Ontology, Metadata, and Semiotics.
He almost makes me want to believe in Artificial Intelligence again.

I was certainly very stimulated by his references to Charles Sanders Peirce (1839-1914). I had come across the concept of deduction, induction, and abduction, but did not know its provenance.
