hi all -- i agree with Andy that Vincent Colapietro's work on Pierce
is really smart and interesting.
perhaps easier to find than his out of print book are his review
articles published in the journal semiotica. i have hard copy

1998. "Natural porcesses and historical practices: Towards a
postmodern cosmology of human semiosis. Semiotica 119/1-2: 105-155.
[an eloquent essay on science, knowledge, and representation that

2000. "Robust realism and real externality: The complex commitments
of a convinced pragmatist. Semiotica 130/3-4: 301-372.
[C develops a Peircean approach to hermeneutics]
