Cathy–I know we emailed way back when more about cats than pragmatism, but I wish to offer my heartiest congratulations to both you and Deakin!

And FWIW your work played a part in the shift of my own late career work and thinking toward a pragmatist perspective.Report

Thanks so much Alan! Please send me one of your new pragmatist papers one day – I’m sure I’d love to read it. Report

Hello Cathy and Congratulations. I have become a Peirce admirer over the years and have a FB Group devoted to his writings. We recently read your article on Peirce’s conception of Truth/as a concensus of a scientific/community. I have had this question: it has allegedly been held as a concensus that high fat diet was bad for health; and now the latest findings are that it is Sugar, all along, that has been the culprit (for ill health): Would it be that ‘the truth has changed’ or that it was wrong all along, that facts change? How would Peirce’s concept of truth deal with this?

Sincerely –

CD WomackReport
