Peirce, Leibniz, and the threshold of pragmatism

Francesco Bellucci
Published Online: 2013-06-07 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/sem-2013-0030


This paper discusses the relation between Leibniz's and Peirce's semiotics, especially derived from some of Peirce's unpublished manuscripts, and briefly resumes Leibniz's role in Peirce's scientific and philosophical development. It is argued that not only did Peirce consider Leibniz a great philosopher, but he also regarded him as a pioneer of semiotics.

Keywords: Peirce; Leibniz; pragmatism; symbolic knowledge; composition of concepts; meaning
