Charles Sanders Peirce

American philosopher, physicist and mathematician
Do you call it doubting to write down on a piece of paper that you doubt? If so, doubt has nothing to do with any serious business. But do not make believe; if pedantry has not eaten all the reality out of you, recognize, as you must, that there is much that you do not doubt, in the least. Now that which you do not at all doubt, you must and do regard as infallible, absolute truth.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is a common observation that a science first begins to be exact when it is quantitatively treated. What are called the exact sciences are no others than the mathematical ones.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Law is par excellence the thing that wants a reason. Now the only possible way of accounting for the laws of nature, and for uniformity in general, is to suppose them results of evolution.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The universe ought to be presumed too vast to have any character.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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]
