In 1934, Paul Weiss, an American philosopher, the founder of The Review of Metaphysics, and the Metaphysical Society of America, called Charles Peirce "the most original and versatile of American philosophers and America's greatest logician".

In 1943, Webster's Biographical Dictionary added Charles Peirce’s introduction as "now regarded as the most original thinker and greatest logician of his time."

Max Fisch, a well-known writer of identity, individuality, responsibility, morality, and political commitment, commented Charles Peirce as the follow:

“Who is the most original and the most versatile intellect that the Americas have so far produced? The answer Charles S. Peirce is uncontested, because any second would be so far behind as not to be worth nominating. He was mathematician, astronomer, chemist, geodesist, surveyor, cartographer, metrologist, spectroscopist, engineer, inventor; psychologist, philologist, lexicographer, historian of science, mathematical economist, lifelong student of medicine; book reviewer, dramatist, actor, short story writer; phenomenologist, semiotician, logician, rhetorician and metaphysician.”

Without any doubt, Charles Peirce is in the row of the best minds with Henry George, William James, Thorstein Veblen, and Ludwig Wittgenstein.

In 1880, Charles Peirce published his book to his theory of Algebra and Logic ON THE ALGEBRA OF LOGIC. In this book, Peirce discussed the extensional semantics and introduced a usual assumption of modern semantics: the extension of a concept that could be understood as a class and could be empty or universe. He further argued the truth values of the categorical propositions that is popularly being used today. Peirce basically introduced a system for propositional logic based on five axioms including what is now called Peirce's law. His work ON THE ALGEBRA OF LOGIC certainly made the algebra of logic more elegant.

This is a must-read book to understand the foundational thought of Math, Logic, and Philosophy by Charles Peirce, one of the greatest philosophers and logicians in the world.
