Title: Writings of Charles S. Peirce, A Chronological Edition, Volume 8, 1890-1892
Author: Charles S. Peirce
Editor: André De Tienne
Editor: Nathan Houser
Editor: Jonathan Eller
Abstract: Volume 8 includes the writings Peirce composed between May 1890 and July 1892. The principal philosophical achievement in this period is Peirce’s celebrated Monist metaphysical project, consisting of five classic articles that lay out the chief operative principles of an evolutionary cosmology resting on the reality of absolute chance, continuity, and love, relieved against a three-category realism that ushers in Peirce’s objective idealism. Those five papers are published afresh along with four additional unpublished texts that enhance their understanding. The volume includes also eighteen Nation reviews in which Peirce critiques such authors as Carus, James, Comte, Lombroso, and Pearson, or takes part in controversy, notably the dispute between Abbot and Royce. Other documents appear here for the first time: philosophical essays, studies in non-Euclidean geometry, number theory, Boolean algebra, algebra of the copula, great men, classification of the sciences, and moral issues.
