Dear Jerry, List,
From the quotes you wrote, I get it that for Peirce ethics was 2ns, and logic 3ns. I think it is the other way around: Logic to me seems like a brute reaction to a thesis, telling whether it is consistent or not. And ethics seems like mediation to me: It mediates between logic´s reaction and the feeling, the valuing qualia "beautiful" or "ugly" that arise in one´s mind due to the thesis. For example the categorical imperative by Kant: It contains logic in the form of a syllogism, like you cannot act in a way opposing your concept of univerality, if you don´t want to contradict youself by performance. And it contains esthetics, as the motive of this logical reasoning: You want to feel well, have a good feeling with what you do.
