Charles S. Peirce's Evolutionary Philosophyby Carl R. Hausman
Pub. Date: 03/28/2008
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Hausman has written a book whose purpose is to present Peirce's evolutionary realism as his systematic position. The book follows the thread of Peirce's Pragmaticism from its conception, through the theory of signs, the phenomenology and derivation of the categories to the concept of Synechism, which Hausman takes as the heart of Peirce's evolutionary realism. This is a well-organized discussion of Peirce's work, introducing a continuity to his theories. This book is recommended for upper-level undergraduate philosophy majors and graduate students, as well as professional philosophers.
