Peirce on Ethics and Aesthetics

From:

Charles S. Peirce on Esthetics and Ethics
A Bibliography

Kelly A. Parker

When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us.
