Contents Peirce's categories : a first glimpse at representation -- The substance of Peirce's categories : the world phenomenologically conceived -- Mapping the province : from the mirror of nature to constructive representation -- Communities of inquiry : authority, constraint, and inclusivity -- Mediation and normative science : toward an ethic of representation
Summary Although widely recognized as founder and key figure in the current re-emergence of pragmatism, Charles Peirce is rarely brought into contemporary dialogue. This text shows that Peirce has much to offer contemporary debate and deepens the value of his view of representation in light of feminist epistemology
