The Mathematics of Language and Thought, Volume 1

This book describes a new and innovative form of mathematical logic based on a modified form of set theory.

It is axiom based, can be manipulated in much the same way as algebra, and unites the numerous conventional logics using a single form of symbolism.

It also replicates causality and natural human reasoning, which is, of course, probabilistic.

The Mathematics of Language and Thought, Volume 2

This book contains the mathematical proofs in support of Volume 1

A Systems Model of Human Organisation

This short monograph describes a model of human society based on the principles of general systems theory. The model can help us to understand human interaction at all levels.

This monograph follows on from A Systems Model of Human Organisation. It describes the processes involved in the command or leadership components and in subordinate or follower components of human society. It recommended that it be read in conjunction with the two sets of diagrams below which support it.

Logic Causality and Systems

This set of Powerpoint slides describes a means of translating systems and causal processes into symbolic logic.

Leader & Follower Process Diagrams

This is a set of A3 causality diagrams which illustrate the processes described in “A Systems Model o the processes involved set of A3 diagrams.
