Dear All,

I hope all is well.

Would you be kind enough to share a copy of the following papers (and
abstracts) of Professor F. William Lawvere (in case you happen to

On a related note, I was wondering of any efforts to collect together
Professor F. William Lawvere's posts to our Category Theory Mailing
List, most of which are very substantive (e.g., critique of Chomskian
syntax vs. semantics obsession unmindful of theories).  Speaking of
words and concepts, it is amusing to see how the enlightened
artificial intelligentsia (AI) is blissfully oblivious to the
mathematical advances---Bastiani & Ehresmann's Sketches,
Grothendieck's Descent, and F. William Lawvere's Functorial
Semantics---in our understanding of the relationship between
presentations (words) and representations of concepts objectified as
structures (cf.
This may not be surprizing given that Nature, Science, PNAS et al.,
turned political or something other than science (e.g., speaking in
tongues: oracles and faith,
The good old days of MacLane communicating Professor F. William
Lawvere's Category of Sets to PNAS (and, of course, Functorial
Semantics was also published there) are gone for good (cf.

Happy Weekend :)

Thanking you,
Yours truly,
