When scholars cannot agree on what Peirce thought what difference does it make?


Reading long posts discussing Peirce I wonder why
we believe we should know exactly what he meant
What difference does it make
if Peirce helpsus  to think as we think
not necessarily as he did
What we think builds onto the continuity of thinking
which goes back and forth
And nothing that we think is truly lodged until
it has eventuated in some action however small and unobtrusive
I love Peirce
and loving him
I do not hesitate to build on his foundation
even if I get it wrong
For that does not mean what I have built is
without merit
We never have
an absolute fix on anything
I think Peirce would agree
