At the center of his philosophy was a revolutionary model of the way human beings think. Peirce, a logician, challenged traditional models by describing thoughts not as ideas but as signs, external to the self and without meaning unless interpreted by a subsequent thought. His general theory of signs—or semiotic—is especially pertinent to methodologies currently being debated in many disciplines.This anthology, the first one-volume work devoted to Peirces writings on semiotic, provides a much-needed, basic introduction to a complex aspect of his work. James Hoopes has selected the most authoritative texts and supplemented them with informative headnotes. His introduction explains the place of Peirces semiotic in the history of philosophy and compares Peirces theory of signs to theories developed in literature and linguistics.
