"Sheriff's text moves the "guess" to a new level of understanding, while integrating much of Peirce's philosophy, and provokes many questions." --Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy Newletter
"The purpose of Sheriff's work is to expound Peirce's unified theory of the universe--from cosmology to semiotic--and to discuss its ramifications for how we should live. He concludes that Peirce has given us a theory we can live with. The book makes an important contribution to philosophy of life and to the humanities in general." --Nathan Houser
"In clear and concise prose, Sheriff describes Peirce's 'theory of everything, ' a vision of cosmic and human meaning that offers a positive alternative to popular pessimistic and relativistic approaches to life and meaning." --Peirce Project Newsletter
