Review article What's the use?* T. L. SHORT Peirce's Doctrine of Signs is another collection drawn from the Peirce Sesquicentennial Congress at Harvard University in 1989. It contains thirty-four papers, five of which appeared elsewhere, plus an introductory chapter by one of the two editors, Vincent Colapietro. The thirty-five chapters are grouped into eight parts, the first four of which feature aspects of Peirce's theory and the last four of which are applications of that theory. These applications are to the analysis of metaphor, to aesthetics, to linguistics, and to hermeneutics, respectively. But many of the contributions grouped in the first four parts also emphasize applications or make claims or raise questions about the import and usefulness of Peircean semeiotic. (I shall use that spelling, which Peirce himself often used, to distinguish his theory from other versions of semiotic.) And thus we may take this occasion to ask, what is the use of Peirce's semeiotic? More exactly: what are its possible uses and, of these, which uses are being made and which uses are being unwarrantedly neglected? The volume is sufficiently representative of work being done on and in the name of Peirce's semeiotic to provide something of
