"I do not call the solitary studies of a single man a science. It is only when a group of men, more or less in intercommunication, are aiding and stimulating one another by their understanding of a particular group of studies as outsiders cannot understand them, that I call their life a science."

C. S. Peirce, "The Nature of Science", MS 1334, Adirondack Summer School Lectures, 1905

      The Peirce Studies Group (Grupo de Estudios Peirceanos: GEP) at the University of Navarra was created in 1994. Its aim is to promote the study of the work of Charles S. Peirce (1839-1914), especially in Spain and in the Spanish speaking countries, in the belief that his thought may offer some key insights into problems related to the culture, science and philosophy of the 21st century.

      The Group offers a platform for an exchange of ideas regarding the work of Peirce, American pragmatism, its reception in Europe and in the Hispanic world, and related topics. Since its inception, the activities of the Group have included the participation of scholars from different fields, including history, linguistics, literature, philosophy of science, law, communication studies and theology.

Members and contributors

      The ordinary members of the Group are professors and doctoral students from the University of Navarra. There is also a wide international network of Peirce scholars and other researchers that usually collaborate with the activities of the Group.


Additional information

      The Peirce Studies Group provides a wide array of bibliographical material, including the published work of Peirce, microfilms of his manuscripts, a substantial amount of secondary literature in Peircean scholarship and pragmatism, as well as other research tools.

      The Peirce Studies Group is housed in the Department of Philosophy and the Library of the University of Navarra. The address is:

Departamento de Filosofía
Universidad de Navarra
E-31080 Pamplona, Spain

      The Peirce Studies Group has received financial aid from the Government of Navarra (1996-1997) and from the Plan for the Research of the University of Navarra (1995-98, 1998-2000).
