International Colloquium: C.S. Peirce on Symbolicity and Convention. Signs, Language, Social Norms

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, June 19th-20th 2017

The international colloquium C.S. Peirce on Symbolicity and Convention: Signs, Language, Social Norms will explore the potentialities of Peirce’s concept of symbol from an interdisciplinary perspective, with an eye to unearthing the contemporary implications of his ideas. It will bring together scholars who have been working on Peirce both from a viewpoint internal to his philosophy and with the goal of opening up new paths of inquiry in disciplines such as linguistics, semiotics, and the cognitive and social sciences.
