"This collection of essays, from 50 years of writing about C.S. Peirce by Gerard Deledalle (Columbia Univ.), offers critical investigations of topics in semiotics and helpful philosophical comparisons. Deledalle's efforts to introduce Peirce to a French and European audience are laudable, since Peirce is often difficult to comprehend in English. Also laudable is Deledalle's historic sense of Peirce's semiotic thinking, especially his chapter on the Greek origins of Peirce's terms. Because many of these essays are written as introductions to Peirce's thought, there is some repetition. The text also reflects the limited secondary resources on Peirce available in French. What Deledalle does exceptionally well, though, is bring Peirce's thought into historical and philosophical dialogue with Saussure, Wittgenstein, Frege, Morris, McLuhan, and the trinitarian doctrine of the Eastern and Western church. A very rich read for those who admire and understand Peirce's significance. Suitable for graduate students and researchers." ―R. Ward, Georgetown College, 2001nov CHOICE.
