Some Consequences of Four Incapacities

Title

Some Consequences of Four Incapacities

Description

First published in the Journal of Speculative Philosophy, vol. 2 (1868): 140-157, this paper is the second of a series of three that appeared in the same journal during the period 1868-1869.

According to Houser and Kloesel (Eds.), The Essential Peirce, vol. 1 (Bloomington: Indiana, 1992), p. 28, in this paper, Peirce extends the previous paper, "Questions Concerning Certain Faculties Claimed for Man." Here he "develops an account of mind and reality ... asserts that all mental events are valid inferences, and claims that as every thought is a sign, so man himself is a sign. He also gives a fairly detailed account of his theory of signs as of 1868, and makes his first published declaration for scholastic realism."
