This July the Charles S. Peirce International Centennial Congress will be held in Lowell, Massachusetts, an event that will have about three hundred Peirce scholars worldwide attend. The general theme of the congress is Invigorating Philosophy for the 21st Century.
Peirce was one of the most creative and versatile intellectual figures of the last two centuries. Although his genius went largely unrecognized during his lifetime, his work has exerted a considerable influence on the development of philosophy and many other disciplines. READ MORE.
The aim of the Centennial Congress is to advance scholarship on all aspects of Peirce’s thought and biography, and to investigate the relevance and potential of his philosophy for the 21st century—for contemporary philosophical debates and beyond. The organizers welcome interdisciplinary submissions and contributions from scholars in disciplines other than philosophy.
Professor Robert Lane, one of the Congress organizers is an editor of the journal Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society, published by IU Press.
