  • Wilhelm Jerusalem, Europe's Early Interpreter of Pragmatism: Introduction
           to Translations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Although long a forgotten figure, the Viennese philosopher and sociologist Wilhelm Jerusalem (1854–1923) has been the subject of renewed interest in recent years as an important early interpreter of pragmatism and as someone whose encounter with pragmatism was key to the development of his own distinctive approach to philosophy and social science (Joas 1993; Kusch 2003; Nagl 2005; Stikkers 2009, 2021; Ferrari 2010, 2017; Uebel 2012, 2019; Huebner 2013). Through the efforts of Jerusalem, more than any other single individual, William James was read and debated in the effervescent contexts of early twentieth century German-speaking intellectual circles.Jerusalem translated pragmatism in a double sense: he literally ...

  • Remarks on Pragmatism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: By translating the present work, I would like to contribute to making known in Germany a new philosophical direction which has arisen in America in the last few years and has found careful attention and eager followers in England, France, and Italy. I expect it to provide valuable stimuli to present-day German philosophy.William James, until recently professor of philosophy at the famous Harvard University in Cambridge near Boston (North America), is not the creator, but is one of the first and most important advocates of pragmatism. While up to now one could only orient oneself in this new direction through scattered articles in American, English, French, and Italian journals, this book is the first attempt to ... Read More

  • An Overview of Charles Peirce on Ethics, Esthetics and the Normative
           Sciences

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Charles Peirce on Ethics, Esthetics and the Normative Sciences (2021), I argue that Peirce had two primary motivations for developing a normative science of ethics and esthetics. First, he was concerned about the use of science in the Gilded Age, where industry, business and laboratory now co-mingled to a degree not seen before. He worried this might corrupt the purpose of science as truth-seeking inquiry (CP 8.255, 1902; CP 2.198, 1902; CP 5.513, c. 1905). Second, there was a concern about his own pragmatic maxim (CP 5.412, 1905). I believe he came to recognize that it engendered a form of practical reasoning that, ironically, presaged the instrumental use of science. He makes it clear that, in Kant's ... Read More

  • Where There's a Will . . . There's a Choice: Comments on Liszka's Charles
           Peirce on Ethics, Esthetics and the Normative Sciences

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: First things first—my thanks to Richard Atkins for organizing this panel, to my fellow panelists Diana Heney and Aaron Wilson, and most of all to James Liszka, whose masterful effort at filling in the gaps of Peirce's incomplete normative theory unifying esthetics and ethics with logic, has resulted in a work that is itself "true, beautiful, and good"1 in its contribution to Peirce scholarship. Liszka takes us down the many paths of the development of Peirce's thought, all the while pointing to possible influences along the way, as Peirce tries to relate reasoning, purpose, and conduct, to reasonableness as the highest and noblest end, and connect all these with his pragmatic maxim. I wish to travel down a path ... Read More

  • The Work of the Normative Sciences: On Liszka's Charles Peirce on Ethics,
           Esthetics and the Normative Sciences

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the past, I have been fond of quoting two remarks about the idea of a Peircean program in ethics. The first is from Rosa Mayorga, who puts the point succinctly: "Charles Peirce did not seem to have a consistent view regarding ethics. His occasional remarks on this subject appear to be contradictory at best and cynical at worst" (2012, 101). The second is from James Liszka, who is equally direct: "Despite Peirce's apparently earnest study of ethical thinkers, he was never able to complete his own work on ethics in any systematic fashion. As in much of Peirce's work, in his writing on ethics, there are only sketches, occasional remarks, differing—sometimes conflicting—drafts of material, fragments, and alternative ... Read More

  • Remarks on James Liszka's Charles Peirce on Ethics, Esthetics and the
           Normative Sciences

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: James Liszka's Charles Peirce on Ethics, Esthetics, and the Normative Sciences is an impressive work that advances Peirce scholarship on at least three fronts. First, it traces the historical influences on Peirce's ethical thought with great precision. Second, it adds to an increasingly rich conversation about Peirce's metaethics, further advancing the claim that the later Peirce held a form of moral realism by making important observations about how Peirce's "convergence theory of truth" applies to moral truths. Third, Liszka usefully contrasts and draws connections between Peirce's views and more recent ethical and metaethical theory, including Wiggin's and Kitcher's convergence theories of moral truth. While we ... Read More

  • Charles Peirce on Ethics, Esthetics and the Normative Sciences: Response
           to Commentators

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: First, my thanks to Richard Atkins for organizing an author-meets-critic panel at the 2022 Eastern APA to discuss Charles Peirce on Ethics, Esthetics and the Normative Sciences. The present commentaries and my response are based on this session. I want to mention that his book, Peirce and the Conduct of Life (2016), was a source of insightful scholarship for me about Peirce's ethical thought. I am also grateful to Cornelis de Waal for inviting publication of these commentaries and responses in this issue of The Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society. I should note that his work on Peirce's ethics, in particular his article "Who's Afraid of Charles Sanders Peirce' Knocking Some Critical Common Sense into ... Read More

  • Charles S. Peirce: Selected Writings on Semiotics 1894–1912 ed. by
           Francesco Bellucci (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: With Francesco Bellucci's Charles S. Peirce: Selected Writings on Semiotics 1894–1912 and the Peirceana series, which Bellucci co-edits with Ahti-Veikko Pietarinen, the center of gravity in Peirce studies has dramatically shifted to Europe. The powerhouses of old, such as the Peirce Edition Project at Indiana University and the Institute for Studies in Pragmaticism at Texas Tech University, appear pretty much dead in the water. And this new center of gravity is by no means limited to secondary literature. Bellucci's edition of Peirce's writings on semiotics and Pietarinen's multi-volume Logic of the Future present us with well-thought-out and responsibly edited volumes of primary literature that will leave their ...
