The Power of Peirce’s Thought : 3

Re: Stephen Rose

There are reasons why I felt compelled to stand back from the picture that others were painting — of opposing personal styles in the creative process and also in the wider intellectual landscape — and to seek a Peircean perspective on the tensions that were being portrayed between the contrasting alternatives.  I broke off with words that were roughly to this effect:

  • Beyond the pale of Peirce the great majority of discussions in that vein tend to bedevil themselves interminably with a style of dichotomous thinking that Peirce taught us ways to transcend.

On third thought, “transcend” is not exactly the right word, as I’d never want to suggest that the tensions are not real, or that it pays to resolve them too prematurely.  Still, it is hardly ever the case that the lost chord is lost forever.
