  • Peirce’s Imaginative Community: On the Esthetic Grounds of Inquiry

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Peirce is not often seen as a philosopher of art or esthetics.1 He himself confesses to being a “perfect ignoramus” on the subject (EP 2:189, 1903).2 Yet some commentators—Ivo Ibri (2009) and Nicholas Guardiano (2017)—have argued that Peirce’s entire philosophy is ultimately grounded in esthetics. Another reader— Douglas Anderson (2016)—has speculated about a “missing community of firstness,” or of artists, in Peirce’s thought. The present paper contributes to this discussion by both combining and extending these interpretations. My contention is that Peirce provides us with clues for identifying three communities corresponding to his three normative sciences: a community of inquirers for the science of logic, a ... Read More

  • The Term “Experience” as a Tool of Inquiry

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Dewey repeatedly said that the term “experience” was not intended as a subject-matter, but had methodological import. This has led to some confusion because many have felt that his explication of “method” was ambiguous (e.g. Rorty, 1982; Alexander, 2004). Dewey himself took partial credit for this, saying that he regretted having often treated the term “experience” as a substantive (Dewey and Bentley, 1964:124). This may partially account for the types of problems that have concerned philosophers, such as defining the nature of experience or his “metaphysics.” It also helps account for the fact that his last work, Knowing and the Known, in which the term experience did not play a technical role, has long been ...

  • Charles S. Peirce on the University’s Political Potential

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Many academic disciplines today are chiefly characterized by either the pursuit of practical utility or the promotion of social justice. While the desirability of these goals is easily grasped, their costs need explication. Concerned by the predominance of earlier versions of these trends in American universities, Charles S. Peirce thought it important to lay out what is lost when education aims at such ends, while presenting what he understood to be a superior alternative: an education dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake. Such an education, Peirce argues, is not only superior from the point of view of the scholar, but also from the point of view of society. By exploring Peirce’s arguments on ... Read More

  • Environmental Pragmatism and the Revision of Values

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Environmental pragmatism is among the most prominent examples of the influence of pragmatist ideas in societal practice and policy-making. Norton (1991; 2005) envisions adaptive management as a practice that starts from the actual problems faced by communities, with the goal of enabling a democratic process of social learning leading to the improvement of not only (non-normative) beliefs but also the community’s values and aims. Norton’s account is an illuminating example of the criticisms that a pragmatist view of this kind will face. A prominent line of criticism is both philosophical and practical. Instead of beginning with philosophical accounts of environmental values and moral obligations towards nature that ... Read More
