Symbolism and reality a study in the nature of mind by Charles W Morris( )
13 editions published between 1925 and 1993 in English and held by 1,193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Charles W. Morris' doctoral thesis Symbolism and Reality, written in 1925 at Chicago under George H. Mead, has never before been published. It sets out to prove that thought and mind are not entities, nor even processes involving a psychical substance distinguishable from the rest of reality, but are explicable as the functioning of parts of the experience as symbols to an organism of other parts of experience. Being then the symbolic portion of experience, the psychical or mental can neither be sharply opposed to the rest of experience nor identical with the whole of experience. This edition

Signs, language and behavior by Charles W Morris( Book )
56 editions published between 1946 and 1977 in 4 languages and held by 1,017 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For the past twenty years Charles Morris has collected and co-ordinated the major developments in the field of communication, from the physical sciences to the arts, with the intention of formulating a comprehensive, reliable theory of signs. The result is this significant achievement that deserves to rank with the work of Ogden and Richards, Korzybski, and P. W. Bridgman. Signs, Language, and Behavior is not only an invaluable tool for the semantic specialist, but because it reaches into their domains it is of vital interest to scientists, philosophers, linguists, sociologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, educators, critics of the arts--to all, in fact, concerned with problems of meaning, language, and communication. For Dr. Morris considers signs in a wide variety of contexts: in relation to truth and belief, to poetry, religion, literature, morality, philosophy, and especially with reference to the individual in the contemporary world faced with interpreting and appraising the many complex signs around him"--Jacket.

Varieties of human value by Charles W Morris( Book )
35 editions published between 1956 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present study, begun in 1945, Is in part the outgrowth of my earlier book Paths of Life, published in 1942. In that book's interpretation of religious attitudes and ethical systems past and present, three basic dimensions of value were postulated, and seven possible value patterns were analyzed in terms of those dimensions. The seventh of the patterns, or life-orientations, had never been manifested by a major social group, but it was felt that the pattern held promise for man's future. Such an analysis of patterned, dimensional human values seemed worthy of sustained and critical investigation. The belief that a scientific study of values might also advance the enterprise of the humanities was in part related to the philosophical tradition of American pragmatism. Peirce, James, Dewey, Mead, and Lewis were major influences on my thinking, and they had all believed that evaluations were much like scientific judgments and (with some variations) that a scientific study of values and evaluations not only was possible but would be of service to man in his characteristic activity as valuer. It seemed desirable to put this philosophic position to a serious empirical test. -- Preface (p.vii)
