Charles Sanders Peirce

Charles Sanders Peirce

American philosopher, physicist and mathematician
Every work of science great enough to be well remembered for a few generations affords some exemplification of the defective state of the art of reasoning of the time when it was written; and each chief step in science has been a lesson in logic.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The final upshot of thinking is the exercise of volition, and of this thought no longer forms a part; but belief is only a stadium of mental action, an effect upon our nature due to thought, which will influence future thinking.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If an opinion can eventually go to the determination of a practical belief, it, in so far, becomes itself a practical belief; and every proposition that is not pure metaphysical jargon and chatter must have some possible bearing upon practice.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In all the works on pedagogy that ever I read — and they have been many, big, and heavy — I don't remember that any one has advocated a system of teaching by practical jokes, mostly cruel. That, however, describes the method of our great teacher, Experience.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is a common observation that those who dwell continually upon their expectations are apt to become oblivious to the requirements of their actual situation.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
