Parker argues that Peirce's concept of continuity is the central organizing theme of the entire Peircean .

Parker argues that Peirce's concept of continuity is the central organizing theme of the entire Peircean philosophical corpus. He explains how Peirce's unique conception of the mathematical continuum shapes the broad sweep of his thought, extending from mathematics to metaphysics and in religion. Given Peirce's importance in fields ranging from philosophy to mathematics to literary and cultural studies, this new book should appeal to all who seek a fuller, unified understanding of the career and overarching contributions of Peirce, one of the key figures in the American philosophical tradition.

According to Peirce one of the most important philosophical problems is continuity. I will restrain my argument to the definition of the different types of discrete collections according to Peirce, with a special regard to the phenomenon called ?premonition of continuity? (Peirce, 1976, Vol. 3, p. 87, c. 1897). Logic and Philosophy of Logic.

The continuity theory of normal aging states that older adults will usually maintain the same activities, behaviors, relationships as they did in their earlier years of life. According to this theory, older adults try to maintain this continuity of lifestyle by adapting strategies that are connected to their past experiences.

Peirce’s life, as artfully depicted in Joseph Brent’s biography, fits the profile of tortured genius more than most. Much like Aristotle and Kant before him, the singularity of Peirce’s thought germinates in a system of categories. Born the son of a Harvard professor of mathematics, he was precocious, brilliant, unsure of himself, erratic, temperamental, by turns abstemious and lascivious. Whereas Aristotle’s categories were, arguably, ontological predicates designating distinct ways things can be, and Kant’s categories were, inarguably, psychological predicates signifying ways things may be understood, Peirce’s categories fall into neither category.

Based on the combined criteria of interest, utility, clarity and organization, "Continuity of Peirce's Thought" is one of the best philosophy books I've read, and is my favorite of the books and articles I've seen about Peirce. It will be welcomed by those who have been frustrated at finding an accessible, coherent, convincing presentation of Peirce's full system. All the significant areas of Peirce's philosophy are described: pragmatism, semeiotic, architectonic, philosophy of math, synechism, agapism, tychism (although not so much of the latter). The presentation is very logical and economical. Best of all, the text is coherent and almost always crystal clear.

Continuity (synechism) is the linchpin in Parker's presentation, which is justifiable since Peirce called it the "master key" to philosophy. The discussion of continuity is wide-ranging -- working out from its mathematical origins to its implications in phenomenology and semeiotic -- and extensive enough that the reader can finally begin to engage critically with the concept. Parker also incorporates `process' into the heart of several discussions, resulting in an effective presentation of Peirce's semeiotic and philosophy of mind. This should please process theorists, who have to work harder at extracting Peirce's processual ideas from other texts.

Other books and papers provide more details and insight into specific topics, Peirce's philosophical context, and biography, but I believe Parker's book provides the best foundation for further study.

Peirce never said the same thing twice in exactly the same way. His writings are a vast, brilliant continuum. Kelly Parker has helped tame this expanse with this very intelligent, well-written book. First, read volume 1 of the Essential Peirce to get a sense of what Peirce is about. Unless you are willing to read many more thousands of pages of Peirce's other writings - many of which are not readily available - the next step is to read this book, which does an admirable job of presenting Peirce's thought as a connected whole. Along the way read Brent's biography of Peirce.
