Example text

While Firstness is the abstract possibility of a sensation, feeling or quality in an agent, it is experienced as Secondness in a particular object, existing in the world as a token or particular instantiation of a type; it is the other of the agent. Thirdness connects the first (sensation, vague feeling) to the second (the object) to generate a meaning. Thirdness is the category of classes of types; a particular object (Second) belongs to a type or class of objects that have a function within a society.

This fulfillment begins when it is placed within the context of a sentence since solitary words are useless for communication. The sentence is the second of Thirdness: in the sun is shining, the sun is seen as shining – a quality is attributed to a subject. The third of Thirdness is the condition of possibility for dialogue and communication: our utterance, the sun is shining, might lead to a discussion of the depletion of the ozone layer and the resulting increase in skin-related problems. The combinations of signs Given the three different classes of signs, each with their own types, Peirce thought it was possible to combine them to account for all possible signs.

Symbols are conventional through and through. The difference between the symbol and icons or indices is that symbols depend upon the interpretant – since anything can function as a symbol, the symbol needs an interpretant, a meaning to function as a sign. Symbolic signs as interpretants or meanings can generate other interpretants or meanings. Symbols grow. They come into being by development out of other signs, and particularly from likenesses or from mixed signs partaking of the nature of likenesses and symbols.
