Abstract:

The enigmatic thought of Charles S. Peirce (1839-1914), considered by many
to be one of the great philosophers of all time, involves inquiry not only
into virtually all branches and sources of modern semiotics, physics,
cognitive sciences, and mathematics, but also logic, which he understood to
be the only useful approach to the riddle of reality.

This book represents an attempt to outline an analytical method based on
Charles Peirce's least explored branch of philosophy, which is his
evolutionary cosmology, and his notion that the universe as made of an
'effete mind.' The chief argument conceives of human discourse as a giant
metaphor in regard to outside reality. The metaphors arise in our
imagination as lightning-fast schemes of acting, speaking, or thinking. To
prove this, each chapter will present a well-known metaphor and explain how
it is unfolded and conceptualized according to the new method for revealing
meaning.

This original work will interest students and scholars in many fields
including semiotics, linguistics and philosophy.
