ABSTRACT
In this paper, the nature of distinction drawing, in the sense of George Spencer
Brown, is examined with special reference to the distinction between the self and the
other. It is noted that a distinction, which must draw its self, also requires an other and a
transfer distinction, both within a particular distinction and for that distinction to be part
of, and that these can generate the purpose of the distinction as becoming, of, by and for
itself.
