Viewed from the standpoint of the slippery mobility of significance that results when signs are defined according to their changing positions in relative signifying chains, Peirce’s challenge is to discover interpretive regularities and consistencies that can validate a belief. Accordingly, for him, the pragmatic role of a semiotic “diagram” is to trace “frequencies” within the generative processes of sense making, so that it becomes possible to discern rules for understanding (and operating within) regular semiotic orders.

In view of this evident connection between Bergson and the classical pragmatists, it is perplexing that Deleuze does not mention these thinkers in his Bergsonism. 10 We have drawn attention to Deleuze’s explicit references to American pragmatism and particular pragmatists such as James and Peirce. We have also sketched a historical picture of the paths by which certain pragmatic ideas influenced Deleuze’s philosophy, notably via the work of Wahl and, at least in implicit fashion, that of Bergson.
