The Commens DictionaryQuote from ‘Prolegomena to an Apology for Pragmaticism’

Quote:

… we have to distinguish the Immediate Object, which is the Object as the Sign itself represents it, and whose Being is thus dependent upon the Representation of it in the Sign, from the Dynamical Object, which is the Reality which by some means contrives to determine the Sign to its Representation.
