Review quote

... an outstanding introduction... persuasively shows the continuity of Peirce's logical and epistemological theories with his intriguing speculative metaphysics. -- Robert C. Neville, Boston University This very useful little book is the fruit of twenty years of exposure to the writings of one whom the author describes as the alpha and omega of 'any serious work in metaphysics and semiotics'(p.xi.)... an engaging provocative study that is both synoptic and detailed to a degree apppropriate in an introduction, as well as suggestive in ways that warrant attention from more seasoned Peirce enthusiasts. Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society A wonderful accomplishment. Corrington covers an enormous amount of territory in a surprisingly short space, carefully exposing all of the important features and themes of Peirce's philosophy. His prose and analysis are consistently clear and illuminating, yet he also sustains a high level of sophistication. -- Michael L. Raposa, LeHigh University
