  1. Gabriele Gava & Robert Stern (eds.) (2015). Pragmatism, Kant, and Transcendental Philosophy. Routledge.
    Though transcendental philosophy and pragmatism are commonly taken to be at opposite ends of the philosophical spectrum, this collection aims to sustain a dialogue between these traditions, and envisages a rapprochement between them. Contributors demonstrate that, on the one hand, Kant can be read in a non-foundational way, while on the other hand, transcendental arguments can benefit from taking up a pragmatist standpoint—offering valuable means of addressing central philosophical questions concerning truth, meaning, and knowledge instead of simply minimizing their relevance. (...)

  3. Gabriele Gava (2014). Peirce's Account of Purposefulness: A Kantian Perspective. Routledge.
    This book presents a systematic interpretation of Charles S. Peirce’s work based on a Kantian understanding of his teleological account of thought and inquiry. Departing from readings that contrast Peirce’s treatment of purpose, end, and teleology with his early studies of Kant, Gabriele Gava instead argues that focusing on Peirce’s purposefulness as a necessary regulative condition for inquiry and semiotic processes allows for a transcendental interpretation of Peirce’s philosophical project. The author advances this interpretation through presenting original views on aspects (...)

    This article addresses Kant's distinction between a synthetic and an analytic method in philosophy. I will first consider how some commentators have accounted for Kant's distinction and analyze some passages in which Kant defined the analytic and the synthetic method. I will suggest that confusion about Kant's distinction arises because he uses it in at least two different senses. I will then identify a specific way in which Kant accounts for this distinction when he is differentiating between mathematical and philosophical (...)

  6. Gabriele Gava (2011). Can Transcendental Philosophy Endorse Fallibilism? Contemporary Pragmatism 8 (1):133-151.
    The aim of this paper is to apply Charles S. Peirce's pragmatic method to establishing if proponents of transcendental arguments could hold the conclusions of their arguments to be fallibly known. I will thus propose a pragmatic clarification of the concepts of a priority, necessity, and infallibility in order to ascertain if these concepts are unavoidably related or not. I will argue that an a priori knowable necessary proposition is not in principle indubitable, whereas a proposition infallibly known is so. (...)

  7. Gabriele Gava (2011). Does Peirce Reject Transcendental Philosophy? Archiv für Geschichte der Philosophie 93 (2):195-221.
    The aim of this paper is to determine whether Charles S. Peirce's direct criticisms of the transcendental method in philosophy are effective. I will present two different views on transcendental arguments by introducing two ways of accounting for Kant's transcendental project. We will see that Peirce's criticisms are directed against a picture of transcendental philosophy which is in line with what I will call the justificatory account of Kant. Since this view is totally in contrast to what I will call (...)

  8. Gabriele Gava (2011). Peirce's 'Prescision' as a Transcendental Method. International Journal of Philosophical Studies 19 (2):231 - 253.
    Abstract In this Paper I interpret Charles S. Peirce?s method of prescision as a transcendental method. In order to do so, I argue that Peirce?s pragmatism can be interpreted in a transcendental light only if we use a non?justificatory understanding of transcendental philosophy. I show how Peirce?s prescision is similar to some abstracting procedure that Immanuel Kant used in his Critique of Pure Reason. Prescision abstracts from experience and thought in general those elements without which such experience and thought would (...)

  9. Gabriele Gava (2008). The Purposefulness in Our Thought: A Kantian Aid to Understanding Some Essential Features of Peirce. Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 44 (4):pp. 699-727.
    This paper aims to shed light on the role played by purposefulness in Peirce’s account of thought by means of a comparison with Kant’s regulative principles. Purposefulness, as an orientation toward an end involved in a thought process, is distinguished from purposiveness, as conformity to an end. Peirce’s architectonic, cosmology, and theory of natural classes are briefly analyzed in light of these concepts. Then, a comparison between Peirce’s esthetic ideal and regulative hopes and Kant’s regulative ideas and principle of purposiveness (...)
