By Nam T. Nguyen

Nature’s Primal Self examines Corrington’s inspiration, referred to as “ecstatic naturalism,” in juxtaposition to either C. S. Peirce’s pragmatic and semiotic inspiration of the self and Karl Jaspers’ existential elucidation of Existenz. Peirce’s and Jaspers’ anthropocentrism is therefore corrected through Corrington’s ecstatic naturalism. Ecstatic naturalism, as a brand new circulate, is either a semiotic theoretical procedure and a metaphysics that probes deeply into the ontological divide among nature naturing and nature natured. writer Nam T. Nguyen makes an attempt to accomplish 3 pursuits: first, to offer and elucidate the underlying philosophical techniques of Charles Peirce, Karl Jaspers, and Robert Corrington; moment, to critique the anthropocentric self of Peirce’s semiotic pragmatism and of Jaspers’ existential anthropology (periechontology) from the viewpoint of ecstatic naturalism; and 3rd, to introduce the concept that of nature’s primal self, considerably grounded within the point of view of ecstatic naturalism, as a really appropriate, extra encompassing, and richer framework in comparison to Peirce’s semiotic development of the self and Jaspers’ existential proposal of Existenz.
