Note: Peirce later (1906) called his Baldwin definition "mistaken" regarding what he had said and meant to say in his 1878 paper "How to Make Our Ideas Clear":
[...] I did not, therefore, mean to say that acts, which are more strictly singular than anything, could constitute the purport, or adequate proper interpretation, of any symbol. I compared action to the finale of the symphony of thought, belief being a demi-cadence. Nobody conceives that the few bars at the end of a musical movement are the purpose of the movement. They may be called its upshot. But the figure obviously would not bear detailed application. I only mention it to show that the suspicion I myself expressed (Baldwin's Dictionary Article, Pragmatism) [see 3] after a too hasty rereading of the forgotten magazine paper, that it expressed a stoic, that is, a nominalistic, materialistic, and utterly philistine state of thought, was quite mistaken.
See Collected Papers of Charles Sanders Peirce v. 5, paragraph 402, note 3 (written in 1906).
