Editorial Reviews

Review

"[A] brilliant and detailed study.... complex, forcefully conceived." Journal of the American Academy of Religion

"This is a fascinating and complex book." Wayne Proudfoot, The Journal of Religion

"Like Peirce's texts themselves, this book is difficult but important. To scholars of religion familiar with Peirce, this book is invaluable." Religious Studies Review

"This book is an intellectual jaw-breaker...an immensely rewarding study." Pro Ecclesia

Book Description

This is the first study of Charles Peirce's philosophy as a form of writing and the first study of his pragmatic writings as a critique of the modern attempt to change society by writing philosophy. Ochs argues that, as corrected by the pragmatists, the task of modern philosophy is, through writing, to diagram the otherwise hidden rules through which modern society repairs itself. Peirce labelled this elemental writing "enscribing," or "scripture." Redescribing Peirce's pragmatism as "the logic of scripture," Peter Ochs suggests that Christians and Jews may in fact re-read pragmatism as a logic of Scripture: that is, as a modern philosopher's way of diagramming the Bible's rules for repairing broken lives and healing societal suffering. writes his philosophy and suggests that pragmatism re-reads the abstractness of modern philosophic writing as a way of both exhibiting and hiding the every day problems that may have given rise to it. By uncovering problems that are hidden in philosophy, the pragmatist may also uncover every day rules for repairing these problems.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an amazing book! Linking postmodernism, semiotics and scripture into a single conceptual framework is a feat that is most effectively accomplished by Professor Ochs. Hopefully, the practical pragmatic implications and recommended actions that naturally fall out will be taken up by those who recognize that a relational turn away from nominalism and Cartesianism are critically important going forward...
