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.
