On Imagination -- Charles Sanders Peirce



http://www.livejournal.com/users/pandemo/294690.html


It is not too much to say that next after the passion to learn there is no quality so indispensable to the successful prosecution of science as imagination. Find me a people whose early medicine is not mixed up with magic and incantations, and I will find you a people devoid of all scientific ability.
    -- Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914), U.S. philosopher, logician. From notes for a projected history of science c. 1896. Collected Papers, vol. 1, para. 47, Harvard University Press (1934).
