The long-range aim of Arisbe is, ideally, to make everything likely to be especially relevant and useful to those interested in Peirce available here, either on-site or by a hypertext link. Any document closely enough related to Peirce to be helpful in understanding him and his work is welcome for access from this page in particular. If you know of further works that are already on-line that ought to be linked to or included here, let us know about it and also about any works of your own or that you can acquire that you would like to have placed on-line here on the website itself: We will either format them as necessary or provide a basic template that you can use to do so, unless you are already skilled at the HTML markup required or want to learn how to do it yourself. (As the website establishes itself this sort of thing should be handled routinely by a volunteer committee from the Peirce telecommunity, but everything is ad hoc in this early stage of development.)
Material appropriate for this page includes:
(a) secondary studies in the strict sense,
(b) works that can be regarded as continuations or developments from Peirce's work, and
(c) works which provide contexts of understanding for his work, for whatever reason, which could include several sub-categories.
As the library grows, categories and structures of organization can be developed as needed, and it should not be taken for granted that the traditional organizational structures for libraries are to be used unquestioningly or uncritically here. Text in digital form has importantly different properties than in its paper incarnation, and we may discover experimentally that different modes and patterns of access will be appropriate than those to which we are presently accustomed.
PURPOSE: ORGANIZED ACCESS
For a more substantial understanding of the rationale of the virtual Arisbe see the several web pages devoted here to an explanation of that in THE FAQS SECTION of the website.
