This seminar points to the ways in which Charles S. Peirce (1839 – 1914) – “the father of pragmatism” – enhances our understanding of educational processes. In giving an account of Peirce’s later semeiotic while pointing to some fruitful contributions from his “speculative rhetoric,” I here explore how Peirce helps to illuminate the dynamics of knowledge and learning in relation to the complex symbolic economies of today. In what ways may Peirce move beyond traditional notions of educational processes?
