Peirce continues a classical line of calling logic a normative science,
a science of how we ought to do things of we want to achieve a certain
class of objectives.  This makes logic, whose object is truth, akin to
aesthetics, whose object is beauty, pleasure, or experiential goodness,
and ethics, whose object is virtue, justice, or comportmental goodness.    (04)

What is the good of logic?  The classical answer is "truth".    (05)

What is truth?  It's a property of a sign, or a representation,
that makes it a good sign, a representation that is so natured
or so designed as to further the achievement its proper object.    (06)
