Abstract

This paper presents and assesses Charles Sanders Peirce's pragmatic theory of belief, with special attention to his account of the role of belief in science. My aim is to present a chronological assessment of Peirce's main epistemological works, to consider two contemporary treatments of those works, and to ultimately determine whether or not Peirce's view of belief is internally coherent and consistent with his larger system of philosophy.
