Entire volume offered. Contemporary boards, spine perished, but contents are Very Good and the boards could be salvaged as well; very suitable for rebinding. Peirce's papers appear in Vol. XII on pp. 1-15 (Nov. 1877), 286-302 (Jan. 1878), 604-615 (March 1878), 705-718 (April 1878). Two more papers in this series, 'The Order of Nature' and 'Deduction, Induction, and Hypothesis', were published in Vol. XIII (not offered here). '[H]is most famous papers' (Christopher Hookway, Truth, Rationality, and Pragmatism: themes from Peirce, 2000, p. 3). 'Peirce's famous pragmatic maxim was enunciated in 'How to Make Our Ideas Clear,' which he wrote (in French) on shipboard before reaching Plymouth on the way to the Stuttgart meetings of the European Geodetic Association in 1877. The paper contains his statement of a laboratory procedure valid in the search for 'truth' ' (Carolyn Eisele in D.S.B. X: 485; article 482-88). 'For Charles Peirce, the project of inquiry is a social one. Though inquiry, the passage from genuine doubt to settled belief, can be described on the individual level, its significance as a human activity is manifested in collective action. Peirce carefully described the proper method of inquiry as the 'scientific method' in the 1877-8 Popular Science Monthly article series. . Peirce prefaces his case for science as the best method for fixing belief by showing why three other popular methods fail. . in 'The Fixation of Belief' Peirce argues against the method of tenacity stating that it 'will be unable to hold its ground in practice. The social impulse is against it' (David L. Hildebrand, 'Genuine Doubt and the Community in Peirce's Theory of Inquiry', Southwest Philosophy Review 12:1, 1996, pp. 33-43). 'The 'clarity of ideas' pursued by Peirce, the philosopher, was to be achieved, according to him, by the application of a procedure logically analogous to that which Peirce, the practical scientist, was accustomed to follow in his experimental work. This double aspect of Peirce's intellectual life has, of course, been generally recognized. It was first fully appreciated and aptly described by the late Morris R. Cohen: 'Charles Peirce of all American philosophers has shown the greatest insight into science. The son of a great mathematician [Benjamin Peirce, 1809-1880] and himself experienced in actual scientific work (geodetic survey), he understood what it was to engage in scientific measurements. With Chauncey Wright and other members of a philosophical club he worked out a substantial theory of science, analyzing the nature of law, predictability, and other basic scientific concepts. Fundamentally, he regarded science as a method rather than a bundle of laws' ' (Eisele, 'The Scientist-Philosopher C. S. Peirce at the Smithsonian', Journal of the History of Ideas, Vol. 18, No. 4, Oct., 1957, pp. 537-547; quoting Cohen, American Thought, 1954, p. 75). N° de ref. de la librería
