Grounds of Validity of the Laws of Logic: Further Consequences of Four Incapacities

Title

Grounds of Validity of the Laws of Logic: Further Consequences of Four Incapacities

Description

First published in the Journal of Speculative Philosophy, vol. 2 (1869): 193-208, this paper is the third and final installment 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. 56, in this paper, "Peirce works out a rationale for the objective validity of the laws of logic and, by linking epistemology with a social theory of logic, grounds induction in altruistic sentiments. He also discusses a version of the liar paradox and offers a solution based on the supposition that 'every proposition asserts its own truth,' and he makes his first published reference to De Morgan's work on the logic of relations."
