  1. Charles Peirce and Firstness: The Category of Origins.Amalia Nurma Dewi, Torkild Thellefsen & Bent Sørensen - 2020 - Semiotica 2020 (235):63-73.
    Peirce’s category of Firstness is first and fundamental. Without Firstness, we can say, nothing can be – no time, no space, no things, no processes, no growth, no regularities, and no thoughts – hence, nothing of which we can ever conceive. However, despite the fundamentality of Peirce’s category of Firstness, we still do not believe that it has received the attention that it rightly deserves; not by Peirce himself, nor by his commentators. In the following we will, therefore, look at (...)

  • La metodología de la abducción en el caso del descubrimiento del megaterio.Antonio Duarte Calvo - 2017 - Theoria: Revista de Teoría, Historia y Fundamentos de la Ciencia 32 (2):191-209.
    En este artículo se analiza el caso del descubrimiento del megaterio desde una perspectiva abductiva, prestando atención al proceso de generación y selección de hipótesis de algunos de los actores involucrados en este singular acontecimiento. El análisis muestra la importancia de ciertos puntos metodológicos relacionados con la práctica y el rigor científico para proponer hipótesis plausibles.

  • Reconsidering Philosophical Questions and Neuroscientific Answers: Two Pillars of Inquiry.Mark Tschaepe - 2013 - Human Affairs 23 (4):606-615.
    I propose the next steps in the neuropragmatic approach to philosophy that has been advocated by Solymosi and Shook. My focus is the initial process of inquiry implicit in addressing philosophical questions of cognition and mind by utilizing the tools of neuroscientific research. I combine John Dewey’s pattern of inquiry with Charles Peirce’s three forms of inference in order to outline a methodological schema for neuropragmatic inquiry. My goal is to establish ignorance and guessing as well-defined pillars of methodology upon (...)

  • La cuestión por la novedad en el pragmatismo como lógica de la abducción.Manuel Dario Palacio Muños - 2014 - Cuadernos de Filosofía Latinoamericana 35 (111):21.
    El presente artículo presenta cuatro visiones sobre la función de la abducción en el pragmatismo de Peirce y el modo en que afronta el tema de la novedad en la ciencia. La primera visión reduce la abducción a una intuición. La segunda indica que la abducción no sirve sin un “instinto descubridor”, la tercera apunta a que la abducción es insuficiente para explicar la novedad en la ciencia. La cuarta visión, que es la que se sostiene en este artículo, afirma (...)

  • Abducción y "lógica docens".Antonio Duarte Calvo - 2018 - Revista de Filosofía 43 (1):27-47.
    In this article I analyze the Peirce’s concepts of abduction, insight, logica utens and logica docens in order to propose, finally, a vision in which “genuine” abductions are generated only after an exercise in logica docens. These “genuine” abductions are characterized in contrast to those generated by means of logica utens.

  • Peirce's Final Account of Signs and the Philosophy of Language.Albert Atkin - 2008 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 44 (1):pp. 63-85.
    In this paper I examine parallels between C.S. Peirce's most mature account of signs and contemporary philosophy of language. I do this by first introducing a summary of Peirce's final account of Signs. I then use that account of signs to reconstruct Peircian answers to two puzzles of reference: The Problem of Cognitive Significance, or Frege's Puzzle; and The Same-Saying Phenomenon for Indexicals. Finally, a comparison of these Peircian answers with both Fregean and Direct Referentialist approaches to the puzzles highlights (...)

  • The Methodology of Abduction in the Case of the Discovery of the Megatherium.Antonio Duarte Calvo - 2017 - Theoria : An International Journal for Theory, History and Fundations of Science 32 (2).
    In this article, I analyze the case of the discovery of the megatherium from an abductive perspective, paying attention to the process of hypothesis generation and selection of some of the agents involved in this unique event. The analysis shows the importance of certain methodological issues related to scientific rigor in order to propose plausible hypotheses.
