How do we form beliefs? William Kingdon Clifford answers this question by examining how humans: 1) use inquiry and gather evidence; 2) rely on the weight of authority; and 3) infer the future from the past and present. Clifford's classic essay powerfully demonstrates scientific rational thinking. His famous idea that "it is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence" comes from this work.
