Sample text

For semeiotic (specifically critical logic, but also universal rhetoric), this will involve the broader issues of justification, the justification of a certain method of inquiry (cf. 780). Finally, it would also seek to establish criteria for evaluating the truth of particular propositions (as opposed to the validity of arguments which might employ true propositions). Again, in this regard semeiotic must act like a bootstrap science: if one of the goals of semeiotic is a normative evaluation of these methods and means for establishing the truth of propositions, then, it would have to apply the criteria it establishes to its own investigations.

Peirce and Victoria Lady Welby. Edited by Charles S. Hardwick. NEMThe New Elements of Mathematics. 4 vols. Edited by Carolyn Eisele. MSManuscript numbers correspond to Annotated Catalogue of the Papers of Charles S. Peirce. Richard S. Robin. LReferences to the correspondence of Peirce. The best bibliographic source on Peirce's writings on semeiotic and the relevant manuscripts is Fisch, Ketner, and Kloesel (1979). General studies of Peirce's theory of signs, or at least those that involve a preponderance of material on this topic, include Apel (1981), Bense (1967), Fisch (1978), Fisette (1990), Fitzgerald (1966), Greenlee (1973), Savan (1988), and Walther (1974).

The question, then, is whether these two distinct accounts of the discipline are incompatible (cf. Martinet 1980) or compatible, and if so, whether they are complementary (Culler 1981: 24, Merrell 1990: 96) or hierarchically dependent. The only way in which the logical or formal view of semeiotic and the empirical one would be compatible is if the empirical and the formal were treated as the same. 39-54), and it is something with which Saussure had no concern. Actually, psychologism has grown to have three senses.
