  4. Conclusion.

Peirce's presentation of the fundamental hypothesis centers around his notion of doubt. The hypothesis is fundamentally a scientific one and supports the fact that things exist and have ascertainable causes and consequences. Doubt, for example, arises in the face of uncertainty, and the natural consequence of doubt in humans is action, which is an attempt to resolve uncertainty. By this rationale, reason is fundamentally a tool by which humans measure and assess the existing world. Experience in the world of existence provides us with the logical facts about the world that we need in order to maneuver in it.
