Example text

In another manuscript of that year, “Potentia ex Impotentia”, Peirce comments on the first article of the cognition series: “Our experience of any object is developed by a process continuous from the very first, of change of the cognition and increase in the liveliness of consciousness” (W2: 191). This hint at what would become synechism prepares the way for the rainbow metaphor, an iconic sign of the unbroken blend of light and water that produces that physical phenomenon. Similarly, in experience, the external and internal come together through sign mediation in an evolving mixture of error and truth that only time and self-criticism are able to refine.

Moreover, it is not sufficient to take our feeling of having an intuitive power as evidence for its real existence since this very feeling could be “the result of education, old associations” or it may depend “on presupposing the very matter testified to” (EPI: 12). Most importantly, Plato’s paradigmatic suggestion of the epistemic priority of ‘first person’ accounts of facts2 seems to be at stake: “Every lawyer knows how difficult is for a witness to distinguish between what they have seen and what they have inferred” (EPI: 13–14).

Semiosis is the subject matter of semiotics, just as the psyche is the subject matter of psychology, the social of sociology, the biological of biology, etc. Charles Morris states that “Semiotic as the science of semiosis is as distinct from semiosis as is any science from its subject matter” (Morris 1971 [1949]: 23). Morris himself distinguishes between three dimensions of semiosis, the semantical, syntactical and pragmatical. To these there correspond the three dimensions of semiotics – semantics, syntactics and pragmatics.
