Over the years the Peirce Project has accumulated important resources
in American philosophy and culture, including nationally significant
collections of correspondence and papers by Max Fisch and Charles Morris,
a substantial library of American thought, and a vast quantity of material
directly relating to the life of Charles S. Peirce. This combination of
resources and scholarly potential has served as a magnet for scholars and
students who are working on Peirce or in areas related to his interests
(a broad range of areas including American thought in general as well as
semiotics, history and philosophy of science, history and philosophy of
logic and mathematics, pragmatism, and more). The Peirce Project has been
noted as an important center in Synthese and in The Chronicle of
Higher Education, and in acknowledgements to many books and dissertations.
Over one hundred scholars from nineteen countries have visited the
Peirce Project since 1993. Of the eighty or more graduate students known to
have worked on or completed Ph.D. dissertations on Peirce during these years,
over twenty have conducted research at the Peirce Project.
