Sign Systems Studies 43 (4):438-445 (2015)

This paper examines the connections between triadism and processuality in Peirce’s semiotics by comparing two reducibility theses. Peirce’s thesis regarding the irreducibility of triads and its corollary in semiotics, the irreducibility of signs, is compared with the process metaphysical thesis regarding the irreducibility of processes. The comparison indicates that there is a connection between the irreducibility of signs and the irreducibility of processes; that the triadic condition of the sign entails process metaphysical commitments; and this in turn urges us to consider the ontology of the sign from a process metaphysical perspective.
