Re: Ontolog ForumBruce Schuman

I would call that the pragmatic-semiotic point of view and not find anything shocking in it.

One can find earlier foreshadowings — Plato’s Cratylus and the Stoic lekton are often mentioned in this connection — but the clearest precursor of the pragmatic-semiotic perspective occurs in Aristotle’s recognition of the triadic sign relation, most succinctly in his treatise On Interpretation.

Here’s the little essay Susan Awbrey and I wrote on that, tracing the continuities of pragmatic semiotics from Aristotle up through Peirce and Dewey and teasing out the intimate relationship between the theory of signs and the theory of inquiry.
