Pragmatic Theory Of Truth • 13

Re: FB | Charles S. Peirce SocietyJohn Corcoran

I looked at John Corcoran’s contribution on “Formalizing Pragmatic Truth” but did not see anything near enough what I’d recognize as a pragmatic theory of truth.

Pragmatic inquiry into a putative concept of truth would begin by applying the pragmatic maxim to clarify the concept as far as possible and a pragmatic definition of truth, if any should result, would find its place within Peirce’s theory of logic as formal semiotics, in other words, stated in terms of a formal theory of triadic sign relations.
