THE PEIRCE STUDIES
|"I do not call the solitary studies of a
single man a science. It is only when a group of men, more or less in
intercommunication, are aiding and stimulating one another by their
understanding of a particular group of studies as outsiders cannot
understand them, that I call their life a science."
