6 Scopus citations


The author presents a novel interpretation of Peirce's 'speculative rhetoric' (the third and culminating branch of his general theory of signs), then draws out the most important implications of Peircean rhetoric for understanding our educational practices and, more generally, human learning. Improvisation and the unanticipated emergence of novel purposes are herein stressed.
