Peirce's semiotic version of the semantic tradition in formal logic

Abstract : The aim is not so much to stress the important of Peirce's formal contributions to the semantic view (Boole, Scröder, LÖwenheim) in formal logic (his treatment of the quantifiers, a correct definition of validity for the sentential calculus, etc.), as to argue that Peirce's semantic trend is part and parcel of his semiotic treatment of a general theory of meaning, understanding and interpretation, a theory of how signs function which enables him to classify different sorts of signs in a natural way.
