His mind was Labyrinthine, his terminology intricate, and his writings are, as he himself confessed, \"a snarl of twine.\" This book rather is intended perhaps even primarily as an essay in epistemology, taking Peirce\'s as the focal point. The book thus addresses a general philosophical audience and bears as much on the wider issue as on the man. I hope therefore that readers will give their critical attention to the problem of knowledge and the sugges\u00AD tions we have developed around that problem and will not look here in the hope of finding an exhaustive piece of Peirce scholarship.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"I.
