Editorial Reviews


I now understand some nuances of Peirce’s realism for the first time as a result of Dr. Mayorga’s careful study. She goes beyond Boler in a number of ways, especially in showing how Peirce’s 'realicism' connects and elucidates other areas of his philosophy. Dr. Mayorga’s work on Peirce’s scholastic realism will set the standard in this area and has opened a new program of Peirce research. (Nathan Houser, Peirce Edition Project)

This is a sharply focused yet engagingly written study of Charles Peirce's nuanced position. Rosa Mayorga nicely balances her concern with the historical context and contemporary relevance of Peirce's unique form of philosophical realism (in her neologism, 'realicism'). (Vincent Colapietro, Pennsylvania State University)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book did a lot to help me understand the historical background of Peirce's realism. Perez-Teran shows how the "muddle" over universals started with Aristotle and was gradually cleared up, via the work of thinkers such as Alexander of Aphrodisias, Boethius, Avicenna, and Duns Scotus. Scotus was a big inspiration to Peirce, but eventually he turned to a more extreme realist position (Perez-Teran's "realicism") because his view of reality centers on general concepts (triadic relations) unlike Scotus, who emphasized the individual. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to understand Peirce better.

I doubt that Perez-Teran's coined term "realicism" will catch on.
