In contemporary society, philosophers are almost always philosophy teachers. In this session, we will turn our attention from exploring and evaluating the infinitely fascinating ideas of Charles Sanders Peirce to the question of sharing them with undergraduates. Some of the specific topics that we will consider are: identifying Peirce’s most important articles and most important themes; potential mistakes in teaching Peirce; some common student misinterpretations; where to begin in the secondary literature, etc. We are hoping for your contribution.
This session was organized by James Campbell and Richard E. Hart (Bloomfield College).
