Logic of Relatives (1883), more precisely, "Note B. The Logic of Relatives", is the title of a 17 page addendum to the chapter entitled "A Theory of Probable Inference" that C.S. Peirce contributed to the volume, Studies in Logic by Members of the Johns Hopkins University, published by Little, Brown, and Company of Boston, MA, in 1883. This volume, edited by Peirce, collected works of his students at Johns Hopkins. As a body, these works broke new ground in several different directions of logical exploration at once.
