Peirce on Education: Pragmatism and Peirce's Definition of the Purpose of a University
Midtgarden, Torjus
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v24 n3-4 p327-335 Jul 2005
Drawing on Peirce's later as well as his early formulation of pragmatism, I show in this article how Peirce's definition of the purpose of a university can be reformulated in terms of his semiotic pragmatism. The abstract educational principles appealed to in the definition may thus be rephrased in terms of our pre-specialized capacities for learning and communication.
