Abstract

American Journal of Theology and Philosophy ist, both constructive (David Ray Griffin, Frederick Ferré) and deconstructive (Catherine Keller, Roland Faber), it seems quite peculiar that the author considers his hero to be one of the major catalysts of "the modernist revolution" of the early twentieth century. It would have been helpful if Richardson had articulated what he means by "modernism" and provided some discussion of why he interprets James as a modernist. Perhaps the greatest compliment that could be paid to a philosopher is that she/he lived her/his philosophy. Something similar is the best thing about this book: Richardson shows with great empathy that William James, in spite of his bouts with depression, his nearly constant physical ailments, and his occasional feelings of inadequacy was able to live an abundant life that was in many ways an embodiment of his philosophy. Pierce's Theory of Signs. T. L. Short. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2007. xvii + 374 pp. $48.00 paper. (Reviewed by Amos Yong, Regent University School of Divinity) eircean semeiotics--Peirce's own term, in contrast to the discipline of "semiotics" that is usually spelled without the second "e"--has generated a substantial secondary literature, much of it designed to clarify
