Dear friends,
I'm becoming more and more interested in Percy day by day. And also in
Peirce's theory of language, although it's still rather obscure to me.
In a way, it reminds me of Buber's inter-subjectivity as formulated in
"I and Thou" (the triadic formula), but then I haven't had a chance to
read much of Peirce and I may have got it wrong.
I'm enjoying these days the company of Wittgenstein ("The Blue and
Brown Books" and the great "Wittgenstein for Beginners" by John Heaton
and Judy Groves), and also reflecting again on that genius/madman
Lacan and his own approach to language in the psychoanalytical
Do you see a common thread in them?
I have an intuitive feeling that there is one, but so far haven't been
able to formulate it in clear words.
All best wishes,
Julio (Caracas)
