Open peer commentary on the article “Mathematical Work of Francisco Varela” by Louis H. Kauffman. Upshot: The aim of this commentary is to show that a new development in formal logic, namely paraconsistent logic, should be connected with the laws of form. This note also includes some personal history to serve as background.
