Descartes’s universal doubt, according to Peirce and his fellow pragmatists, is a fake: we do not doubt in general or wholesale fashion. It is only when we have some question about a specific item that doubt occurs, and this is possible because, for the moment, we accept without question a context of beliefs. This is not to say, of course, that these other beliefs are indubitable, for another time they may be questioned but once more within a context of accepted beliefs or habits of action.
