Beschreibung

C S Peirce, the founder of pragmatism, argued that truth is what we would agree upon, were inquiry to be pursued as far as it could fruitfully go. This book argues for and elucidates the pragmatic account of truth, paying attention both to Peirce's texts and to the requirements for a suitable account of truth.

Within the expanding volume of scholarly works on the writings of the American philosopher Charles Sanders Peirce, Cheryl Misak's study should gain a solid place ... This book will be particularly interesting to Peirce scholars who want to explore Peirce's views on truth or who are following new contributions to this study. Yet since the writing style is very accessible..., and since the book examines a number of topics pursued by Peirce, it will also be useful as an introduction to Peirce's philosophy.
