Description: Charles Sanders Peirce (1839-1914) is rapidly becoming recognized as the greatest American philosopher. At the center of his philosophy was a revolutionary model of the way human beings think. Peirce, a logician, challenged traditional models by describing thoughts not as "ideas" but as "signs," external to the self and without meaning unless interpreted by a subsequent thought. His general theory of signsor semioticis especially pertinent to methodologies currently being debated in many disciplines. This anthology, the first one-volume work devoted to Peirce's writings on semiotic, provides a much-needed, basic introduction to a complex aspect of his work. James Hoopes has selected the most authoritative texts and supplemented them with informative headnotes. His introduction explains the place of Peirce's semiotic in the history of philosophy and compares Peirce's theory of signs to theories developed in literature and linguistics.

James Hoopes is author of Van Wyck Brooks: In Search of American Culture.

Charles Sanders Peirce was the son of the eminent mathematician and Harvard professor Benjamin Peirce. The young Peirce attended Harvard University, where he studied science, mathematics, and philosophy. For 30 years he worked for the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. Because of personal difficulties---he was overbearing and eccentric---he taught only briefly as a lecturer at Harvard (1864-65, 1869-71) and at Johns Hopkins University (1879--84). He wrote no books and published very little during his lifetime, mostly articles and encyclopedia entries, but many collections of his articles and unpublished papers have appeared. Peirce was a brilliant logician and creative metaphysician. His papers, many published long after his death, are of great importance in the philosophical literature.
