(p.98) Five In Memoriam
Pragmatism with Purpose

Peter Hare

Fordham University Press

This chapter pays tribute to Frederic Harold Young (1905–2003), who served as minister of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Newark, New Jersey, and was a Wyman Fellow in Philosophy at Princeton University. On October 15, 1945, Young delivered to the Pike County Historical Society in Milford, Pennsylvania, an address entitled “Charles Sanders Peirce: America's Greatest Logician and Most Original Philosopher.” The speech not only reveals much of Young's own approach to Peirce and highlights Peirce's achievements in logic and philosophy, but also tells us about the attitudes toward Peirce of several eminent philosophers of that day. Young's paper is important to the background of the founding of the Charles S. Peirce Society.

Keywords:   logic, Frederic Harold Young, Charles Sanders Peirce, philosophy, philosophers, Charles S. Peirce Society
