Save Event: thirdness

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


thirdness – a group exhibition by Tamara Branovic with Carsten Becker, Jens Soneryd, Henrik Strömberg, Johannes Wald, Michaela Zimmer.


"By the third, I mean the medium or connecting bond between the absolute first and last. The beginning is first, the end second, the middle third. The end is second, the means third. The thread of life is a third; the fate that snips it, its second. A fork in a road is a third, it supposes three ways; a straight road, considered merely as a connection between two places is second, but so far as it implies passing through intermediate places it is third. Position is first, velocity or the relation of two successive positions second, acceleration or the relation of three successive positions third. But velocity in so far as it is continuous also involves a third. Continuity represents Thirdness almost to perfection. Every process comes under that head. Moderation is a kind of Thirdness. The positive degree of an adjective is first, the superlative second, the comparative third. All exaggerated language, »supreme,« »utter,« »matchless,« »root and branch,« is the furniture of minds which think of seconds and forget thirds. Action is second, but conduct is third. Law as an active force is second, but order and legislation are third. Sympathy, flesh and blood, that by which I feel my neighbor's feelings, is third."

Charles Sanders Peirce, "The Categories in Detail", paragraph 337, 1884
