Re: Jerry Rhee (1) (2)

Verbal acrobatics can get a person only so far, even for a high-wire act like C.S. Peirce, and all the great failures to launch I’ve seen pragmatism and semiotics suffer from during the last century come about because people have a habit of getting waylaid in à priori armchair delicatessen methods of fixing their beliefs in premature contentments.

When it’s time to deal with real experimental data and realistic practical applications then there is no help for it but wrestling with the mathematical structures of triadic sign relations and relations in general.
