(p.239) Afterword
The Contingency of Necessity

Tyler Tritten

Edinburgh University Press

The Afterword offers a defence of thought as free speculation in which no possibilities can ever be excluded a priori. It also argues that although ontological speculation is required to ground other sciences, their findings never necessitate which ontology must accompany them. Facts can always be interpreted in multiple ways; meaning is never fixed. That there is meaning, however, rather than non-sense is a contingent fact and not a necessity.

Keywords:   Peirce, Schopenhauer, Speculative philosophy, Ontology
