Charles Sanders Peirce

American philosopher, physicist and mathematician
The woof and warp of all thought and all research is symbols, and the life of thought and science is the life inherent in symbols; so that it is wrong to say that a good language is important to good thought, merely; for it is the essence of it.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[For] men to whom nothing seems great but reason ... nature ... is a cosmos, so admirable, that to penetrate to its ways seems to them the only thing that makes life worth living. These are the men whom we see possessed by a passion to learn ... Those are the natural scientific men; and they are the only men that have any real success in scientific research.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Truly, that reason upon which we plume ourselves, though it may answer for little things, yet for great decisions is hardly surer than a toss up.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The pragmatist knows that doubt is an art which has to be acquired with difficulty.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We should chiefly depend not upon that department of the soul which is most superficial and fallible (our reason), but upon that department that is deep and sure, which is instinct.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
