Against contemporary scholars who downplay or dismiss the correspondence or representationalist element in Peirce’s account of truth, I argue that Peirce understood his pragmatic account of truth as including, rather than superseding, a representationalist understanding of truth. He did not think of his pragmatism about truth as being in competition with the view that truth involves representation of reality but instead as illuminating that view in terms of purposeful behavior and experience.
