Peirce on Berkeley's Nominalistic Platonism

Show Summary Details


Peirce sought sources for his own version of realism in the history of western thought. In this chapter, his “scholastic” realism is considered in light of the influences of Bishop Berkeley and Duns Scotus. Berkeley is seen to be a Peircean pragmatist in some respects but not all.
