This chapter examines the affectivity of cognition in Charles S. Peirce's Journal of Speculative Philosophy Cognition Series published in 1868–1869. This publication portrays synechistic individuals whose ongoing processes of cognition and habit formation are inescapably shaped by personalized and socialized interests. It analyzes the essays in this publication from the perspective of post-Darwinian affective and social criticism. It also explains that three interrelated issues that emerge from the interplay among Peirce's ideas. These include the uniqueness of an individual's embodiment, cognition and habit-taking; the social and political dimensions of reality, epistemology and human survival; and the politics of child development and habit-taking.

Keywords:   Charles S. Peirce, Journal of Speculative Philosophy, affectivity of cognition, habit formation, cognitive development
