Thought Is Essentially An Action: Peirce and Rorty on Normal and Abnormal Discourse.
Marcio, Jaime J.
Inquiry: Critical Thinking across the Disciplines, v21 n1 p33-42 Fall 2001
Considers how Richard Rorty argues that inquiry is completely different from creativity. Argues that in the pragmatic theory of inquiry as conceived by the early Charles Peirce, the novel and the familiar are so intimate with one another that Rorty's distinction turns out to be overdrawn and untenable.
