Dear Nikki, Karen, Folks-

Although some Peirce scholars disagree with his self assessment, the intellectually recalcitrant Chomsky has credited Peirce as a philosopher he is close to in his own thinking about mind and thought. I think somewhere Percy says, perhaps somewhat facetiously, that he (Percy himself) only took one percent of Peirce and bent it to his own purposes (presumably Christian apologetics). Something Peirce seemed to do a bit of himself. 

At least those are my non own scholarly impressions as a casual reader of all three.

  In response to your question insofar as it relates to Charles Peirce and Choamski, Walker was very pro the former and con the latter.
