Christopher Hookway presents a series of studies of themes from the work of the great American philosopher Charles S. Peirce (1839-1914), often described as the founder of pragmatism. These themes centre on the question of how we are able to investigate the world rationally; Peirce's ideas about this continue to play an important role in philosophy, as Hookway shows. Topics discussed include Peirce's theory of truth, his metaphysical views, his claim that emotions and sentiments guide us in reasoning well, and his religious views.
