Editorial Reviews

Joseph Brent

"One of the most original thinkers and system builders of any time, and certainly the greatest philosopher the United States has ever seen."—Joseph Brent, author of Charles Sanders Peirce: A Life
Hilary Putnam

"Peirce’s achievements would take a short book to describe adequately. In philosophy, he founded the most distinctively American school of thought—Pragmatism. As the founder of pragmatism, he was the intellectual hero of both John Dewey and William James. He also created single-handedly the large discipline called Semeiotic—the study of the working of signs—a discipline which engages scholars all over the world. He was perhaps the first modern Historian of Science, and he was certainly one of the great founders of Mathematical Logic. He was, in truth, one of the rare thinkers who deserves the overworked title of 'genius.'"—Hilary Putnam, author of Pragmatism: An Open Question
Walker Percy

"Most people never heard of him, but they will."—Walker Percy
