(Original title: Štrukturalizmus v pragmatizme Ch. S. Peircea alebo krátky príbeh o stratenej vízii)
Filozofia, 66 (2011), 5, 452-457.
Type of work: Young Philosophy
Publication language: Slovak

The article offers an alternative story about the structuralism in science, philosophy, and semiotics based on the exposition of Ch. S. Peirce’s philosophical project – pragmatism. Contemporary tendency to consider structuralism as naîve and dead, is put in contrast with the reassessment of the potential of structuralism in natural scien- ces and linguistic anthropology.
