John Collier, list:

You said:

…all three elements are involved in the pragmatic maxim.

…there are various differently stated versions of the pragmatic maxim, and
it is also implicit in other work by Peirce.

My question is, *the pragmatic maxim* is not the same as “other work by
Peirce” because maxims are carefully constructed, short expressions of
principles.  They have different functions than essays or books.  You can
put them in your pocket and keep them handy, share it with friends who
don’t know Peirce, etc…

It is true that there are several pragmatic maxims.

So, to which pragmatic maxim were you referring when you asserted that “all
three elements are involved in the pragmatic maxim”?
