|Responsibility:||James Jakób Liszka.|
Liszka begins with a general overview of the discipline of semeiotic (which is Peirce's preferred spelling). Semeiotic plays a critical role in the system of sciences as Peirce understood it. Since all investigation involves signs, semeiotic is pivotal since it not only provides a general understanding of signs, but also investigates their proper use in the process of inquiry, for both the natural sciences and cultural studies. The character of semeiotic in this regard turns out to be different from the semiology of Saussure, which was meant simply to be a branch of social psychology. Moreover, as a formal discipline, Peirce's semeiotic is broader than the contemporary sense of logic but incorporates most of its traditional concerns.
Next, in a chapter on grammar, Liszka explores Peirce's notions of the essential characteristics of signs, their principal components, sign typology, and classification. This is followed by a discussion of critical logic, the proper use of signs in the investigation of the nature of things. Finally, Liszka explains universal rhetoric - the use of signs within discourse communities, the nature of communication, and the character of communities best suited to promote fruitful inquiry.
