  1. The Philosophy of Gesture: Completing Pragmatists' Incomplete Revolution by Giovanni Maddalena.Richard Kenneth Atkins - 2017 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 52 (4):662-665.
    Rarely these days are philosophy books both bold and sweeping, but Maddalena’s The Philosophy of Gesture is both. Whether you think that is good will surely depend on your philosophical temperament. Personally, I consider it bad taste to criticize a philosopher for striking out on a new path. Philosophy, as any student of Peirce’s works will affirm, is an experimental science. Some of those experiments might well lead you to the hinterlands, but at least you will have a more detailed (...)

  2. Linking the Aesthetic and the Normative in Peirce's Pragmaticism: A Heuristic Sketch.Ivo A. Ibri - 2017 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 52 (4):598-610.
    Charles S. Peirce Society 2016 Presidential Address Peirce never could finalize a book or publish it and especially no book on the aesthetic basis of pragmaticism. This is not only a historical note, but has a deeper meaning. It arouses in the attentive reader a strong desire to do what Peirce himself did not have the chance to do: to find a way of linking together his hints and clues in such a way that respects the spirit of his work (...)

  3. The Ironist and the Romantic: Reading Richard Rorty and Stanley Cavell by Áine Mahon.Paul Jenner - 2017 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 52 (4):658-661.
    Richard Rorty and Stanley Cavell are both preoccupied with questions of contingency: whether conventions are ‘merely’ conventional, what kind of foothold they might provide, how to step away from convention, how to make convention one’s own. Not that the work of either philosopher could be described as conventional. Neither produced the philosophical equivalent of the ‘hackwork’ characterizing Thomas Kuhn’s ‘normal science’. Both philosophers invoke traditional philosophical argumentation, but do so only to depart from its terms. To some disciplinary sensibilities, both (...)

  4. La Belleza En Charles S. Peirce: Origen y Alcance de Sus Ideas Estéticas by Sara Barrena.Nemesio García-Carril Puy - 2017 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 52 (4):652-658.
    La belleza en Charles S. Peirce: Origen y alcance de sus ideas estéticas is a clearly written and well-structured book on Peirce’s aesthetics. Barrena’s thesis is that aesthetics, conceived as a normative science, is central to Peirce’s philosophical system, and especially to his pragmaticism. The goal of the book is twofold: it aims to offer an analysis of the biographical and theoretical aspects of Peirce’s interest in aesthetics and the arts and purports to elaborate a pragmaticist aesthetics. Both objectives can (...)
