Charles Peirce

Embodiment and iconicity in the philosophy of Charles Sanders Peirce

Organization: Prof. Dr. Jürgen Trabant, Members: Tullio Viola, Franz Engel, Moritz Queisner, Cooperation: Prof. Dr. Helmut Pape

The cluster pursues two paramount aims: Firstly, fundamental research will be carried out by means of a systematic survey of Peirce’s philosophical legacy, which shall subsequently be made publicly accessible; Secondly, in-depth inquiries into the image-universe of Peirce will be undertaken in the context of a research field still to be established under the title of “Visual Thinking,” which will scrutinize the logic of non-discursive symbols.
