Charles Sanders Peirce
Charles Sanders Peirce (1839-1914) is unique in American
intellectual history and is of seminal importance for modern thought. He was a tireless
and brilliant thinker whose extensive writings have received international attention for
over a century. Remarkably, however, much of what Peirce wrote remains in manuscript form,
unpublished and in significant disarray. There has never been a comprehensive edition of
Peirce's writings organized chronologically and edited according to current scholarly
practices. The Peirce Edition Project was established in 1976 and has been part of IUPUI's
School of Liberal Arts since 1983.
Its mission is to organize and date the manuscripts and to produce an approved scholarly
edition of Peirce's writings. This work is assisted by an internationally recognized team
of advisors and contributors. Five volumes (of a projected thirty) have been published by
Indiana University Press and plans are underway for a parallel electronic edition.
With its extensive collection of primary and secondary materials, the Peirce Edition
Project has become an international center for Peirce scholarship and research related to
Peirce's intellectual accomplishments and interests and attracts students and scholars
from many countries to the Indianapolis campus. Locally, the Peirce Edition Project
provides training for students seeking practical experience in editing, scholarly
research, and development.
The principal purpose of the Peirce Edition Project is
