Eco and Pragmatism

Guest Editor: Claudio Paolucci

EJPAP shall devote a special issue of the journal to Umberto Eco’s pragmatism. As is known, the relation with Pragmatism was at the core of Eco’s aesthetics, semiotics, epistemology, and it was also a pivotal feature of his theory of culture as developed in over fifty years of philosophical and non-philosophical work. Eco’s philosophy and semiotics were inspired by C.S. Peirce’s pragmatism, and his theoretical debts to Peirce are scattered throughout his work. Moreover, his entire theoretical production shows an unequivocal pragmatist mark, and many of his considerations on meaning, text, and interpretation have recognizable pragmatist outcomes.
