The Unknown Storyteller
This paper introduces an innovative application of the Calculus of Indications in George Spencer-Brown's 'Laws of Form' to the analysis of story structure. Proposing a solution to a problem raised by H. A. Porter Abbott (The Cambridge Introduction to Narrative, 2010/2016, p. 21): 'What is necessary for the story of Cinderella to be the story of Cinderella? … is a question that can never be answered with precision.' The paper potentially shows not just what's necessary for the story of Cinderella to be the story of Cinderella, but what's necessary for any story to be identified as a particular kind of story.

Integration in the Liberal Arts
In this Lecture on the integrated and integrative qualities of the Liberal Arts, I look at the Liberal Arts in a non-linear way. In doing so, I explore the links between the word-based Trivium and the number-based Quadrivium in novel ways. I draw on the work of George Spencer-Brown to show innovations in logic that take the practice of logic back to the PreSocratics and demonstrate the universality of the Liberal Arts and the I Ching and how they relate on a fundamental level.
