Nature's Primal Self: Peirce, Jaspers, and Corrington by Nam T. Nguyen

By Nam T. Nguyen

Nature’s Primal Self examines Corrington’s concept, referred to as “ecstatic naturalism,” in juxtaposition to either C. S. Peirce’s pragmatic and semiotic notion of the self and Karl Jaspers’ existential elucidation of Existenz. Peirce’s and Jaspers’ anthropocentrism is hence corrected by way of Corrington’s ecstatic naturalism. Ecstatic naturalism, as a brand new circulation, is either a semiotic theoretical technique and a metaphysics that probes deeply into the ontological divide among nature naturing and nature natured. writer Nam T. Nguyen makes an attempt to accomplish 3 targets: first, to offer and elucidate the underlying philosophical innovations of Charles Peirce, Karl Jaspers, and Robert Corrington; moment, to critique the anthropocentric self of Peirce’s semiotic pragmatism and of Jaspers’ existential anthropology (periechontology) from the viewpoint of ecstatic naturalism; and 3rd, to introduce the idea that of nature’s primal self, appreciably grounded within the standpoint of ecstatic naturalism, as a sensible, extra encompassing, and richer framework in comparison to Peirce’s semiotic building of the self and Jaspers’ existential notion of Existenz.
