Peirce's pragmatism is an answer to the question how to justify inductive reasoning. Peirce finds that the process of knowledge formation has a social character, so he reduces the conception of 'reality' to 'intersubjective agreement' and the conception of 'truth' to 'intersubjective consensus'. In the 20th century Peirce's view on the process of cognition (and speech) was an inspiration for various schools in philosophy and linguistics. His doctrines were frequently studied and interpreted, his open questions were answered in many interesting ways. However, many of them still need to be answered.
