Charles Sanders Peirce

American philosopher, physicist and mathematician
It is not knowing, but the love of learning, that characterizes the scientific man.More Charles Sanders Peirce quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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]
It is certain that the only hope of retroductive reasoning ever reaching the truth is that there may be some natural tendency toward an agreement between the ideas which suggest themselves to the human mind and those which are concerned in the laws of nature.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]
To suppose universal laws of nature capable of being apprehended by the mind and yet having no reason for their special forms, but standing inexplicable and irrational, is hardly a justifiable position. Uniformities are precisely the sort of facts that need to be accounted for. 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]
