Firstness, shock, and signs (peirce)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Firstness has a great quality in Peirces philosophy. This editorial shows that position and relates to a few lines of particular interest to lawyers: A court may issue injunctions and judgments against me and I not care a snap of my finger for them. I may think them idle vapor. But when I feel the sheriffs hand on my shoulder, I shall begin to have a sense of actuality. Actuality is something brute. There is no reason in it.� In it is articulated the power of institutionalization, which upholds law and legal discourse. Firstness relates to this awakened awareness as well as to the shock of affection, recognition, judgment and denomination, which is altogether in human knowledge based on socialized experiences. This becomes clear in the following Chapters as constitutive experiences in Peirces semiotics.
