Charles Sanders Peirce

American philosopher, physicist and mathematician

The real, then, is that which, sooner or later, information and reasoning would finally result in, and which is therefore independent of the vagaries of me and you.

Mathematics is distinguished from all other sciences except only ethics, in standing in no need of ethics.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
