Quote of the Week: west meets east

Today's quote, from the American philosopher, Charles Sanders Peirce:

The irritation of doubt is the only immediate motive for the struggle to attain belief.

This comes from an excellent essay titled "The fixation of belief," which originally appeared in Popular Science Monthly, November, 1877.

The big question always is: how shall we scratch the itch?
