Pragmatic Theory Of Truth • 13

The Difference That Makes A Difference That Peirce Makes : 31

The Difference That Makes A Difference That Peirce Makes : 30

Re: Ontolog Forum • Mihai Nadin Re: Peirce List • Helmut Raulien I first encountered Peirce’s dimensions of generality and vagueness — two measures of determinacy on sign relations describing the extent to which objects are determined by signs and … Continue reading
