Abstract

The main question put on for research in the present paper is “How the evolution of the mind takes place”. Some conceptions of Charles Peirce (1839-1914) are examined in answering the question above. These include: his theories of habit; the habit-taking tendency; categories and evolutionary cosmology. The research is focused on the essence of habit, considered as an important part of Peirce’s vision of the universe evolution. Habit is threaten as a stable knot of meaning where knowledge is stored. It saves mental energy in the everyday life which makes the evolution of the mind possible. The paper also provides my author’s Nine-grade model of evolution upon Peirce’s philosophy: a model to ‘draw’ a clearer picture of the mind development.
