Love of Nature: The Generality of Peircean Concern

Show Summary Details


Unlike other pragmatists, Peirce is not known for his application of philosophical ideas to everyday affairs. However, he also was not opposed to this use of philosophy so long as the application did not drive one's understanding of things. This chapter explores how Peirce's conception of generality might be used to ground some considerations of contemporary environmental thought.

Keywords: agape; environmentalism; generality; Peirce; pragmatism
