Signs are about objects, in every sense of the word “pragmata”


Signs are about objects, in every sense of the word “pragmata”, and
Peirce was about the same pragmata that he arranged his signs about.

I believe it's true that fixating on signs in isolation from their objects
and interpretants, along with fixating on single triples in isolation from
the triadic sign relations in which they take their place as elements, are
the main obstacles that keep would-be understanders of Peirce's signs from
getting off the ground when they seek to apply Peirce's theory of signs to
significant practical objects.  It is my object to do something about that.
