These brief comments constitute a long-delayed response to Christopher Hook-way's 1991 review essay (Semiotica, 1991) devoted to my book on Peirce's Philosophy of Religion (Indiana, 1989). Against the background of considerable agreement, Hookway and I disagree about precisely how to read Peirce's Neglected Argument, about exactly what Peirce is proposing to his readers in that article. I regard Peirce's recommendation of musement as supplying both the rubrics for a certain kind of experiment and as the desciption of a certain type of exercise in reading and rereading.
