Summary/Abstract: Research in Charles Sanders Peirce’s thought has grown rapidly both within and outside the arenas of semiotics and philosophy on the global level. Peirce’s pioneering contributions to philosophy, pragmatism, logic, the theory of signs, methodology, philosophy and history of science and to numerous further fields are currently being explored not only in philosophy and semiotics but also in sciences and in art studies. The second instalment of the Applying Peirce conference, first held in Helsinki in June 2007 in conjunction with the 9th World Congress of Semiotics, was held in Tallinn and Helsinki on 21–23 April, 2014. Th e gathering brought together around 50 scholars and researchers to explore and discuss Peirce’s thought and its applications in the diverse fields of contemporary academia.
