I Introduction Charles Peirce attempted to elaborate his philosophy of nature by denying the Cartesian distinction between mind and body and also by contesting Kant’s critique of metaphysics. Peirce represents metaphysical notions as “hypotheses.” 1 For Peirce, the propositions hold

This book cuts through the complex writing style of the seminal philosopher, Charles Sanders Peirce. It disentangles his ideas, explains them one by one, and then puts the pieces back together for application to educational issues. Accessible to a general readership, this study provides useful insights into Peirce's pragmatism for educators and philosophers.

Diagrammatologie der Fernsehserie

Die Auseinandersetzung mit dem spezifischen Potential diagrammatischer Bildformen behauptet nicht nur in der jüngsten Zeit einige Konjunktur. Dieses Buch fragt allerdings statt nach dem Diagramm im engeren Sinne nach dem Diagrammatischen der bewegten Bilder.
Denn spätestens seit der Jahrtausendwende lässt sich auch eine ganze Reihe von TV-Serien beobachten, die ihre narrative und strukturelle Logik ganz explizit an bild-räumliche, diagrammatische und digitale Visualisierungen knüpfen, wie sie bisher insbesondere aus der Bildproduktion in den Wissenschaften bekannt waren. Unter Rückgriff auf die Logik und pragmatistische Erkenntnistheorie Charles Sanders Peirces wird an Serien wie Numbers, House M.D., 24, Sherlock, aber auch Mad Men gezeigt, dass gerade in der Serialität der entscheidende Schlüssel zum Verständnis des Diagrammatischen des Bewegt-Bildes liegt und dass umgekehrt Serialität eine tiefere Einsicht in die Logik diagrammatischer Operationen eröffnet.

1 Introduction Questioning knowledge has been a topic of interest since the Ancients. Questioning doubt, by contrast, is much more recent. And it is something we can rather safely trace back to two main philosophers: Charles Sanders Peirce and Ludwig Wittgenstein. Both philosophers have

A Peircian Approach to the Interpretation of Science, Technology and the Arts
Author: Noel Boulting
Using the ideas of the American scientist and philosopher Charles Sanders Peirce, three conceptions of interpretation can be distinguished: the Iconic, the Indexical and the Intellective. This trichotomy is based on Peirce’s use of his sign theory and his logic of scientific discovery. The Iconic captures what is valuable in itself for an individual interpreter as opposed to the Indexical which is available for public appreciation as an outcome beyond Interpretative activities. The Intellective extends the Iconic to include the interpretative activities of groups of interpreters employing appropriate methods of inquiry in a more rigorous and rational way. Such distinctions can be used in confronting certain problems in science, technology and the arts.

Introduction The debates on knowability have largely concerned arguments for and against realism, or truth as an epistemic vs. non-epistemic concept. The present article proposes to bring Peirce’s pragmaticism to bear on the issue. Pragmaticism provides an alternative perspective

evidence for or against the possibility of being fed the illusion that, for instance, I have two hands. Hence, I do not know that I have two hands—or even fingers, toes, and so forth. Recent years have seen a surge of interest in pragmatic responses to skepticism inspired by C.S. Peirce. 1 Peirce’s

The Italian Pragmatists were a group of philosophers in the early 20th century, most notably including Giovanni Vailati, Mario Calderoni, Giovanni Papini and Giuseppe Prezzolini. They gathered around the journal Leonardo, published in Florence. The Italian philosophers were in contact with the American Pragmatists, especially with C.S.V. Peirce and W. James, and developed many original and provocative ideas that made the Italian Pragmatists allies and enemies.
Critics have often stressed the differences between their versions of Pragmatism. This volume emphasizes what they shared, and their value for philosophy and culture.
