Peirce made his first published attempts at formulating pragmatism in the s, and the maxim he developed there is often regarded as a prototype of the verification principle proposed by logical positivists in the early twentieth century.
Childhood and origins[ edit ] De Gaulle's birth house in Lillenow a national museum De Gaulle was born in the industrial region of Lille in the Nord departmentthe third of five children. He was raised in a devoutly Catholic and traditional family.
His father, Henri de Gaullewas a professor of history and literature at a Jesuit college who eventually founded his own school. Struck by his mother's tale of how she cried as a child when she heard of the French capitulation to the Germans at Sedan inhe developed a keen interest in military strategy.
He was also influenced by his uncle, also named Charles de Gaullewho was a historian and passionate Celticist who wrote books and pamphlets advocating the union of the Welsh, Scots, Irish, and Bretons into one people.
His grandfather Julien-Philippe was also a historian, and his grandmother Josephine-Marie wrote poems which impassioned his Christian faith.
De Gaulle began writing in his early teens, especially poetry, and later his family paid for a composition, a one-act play in verse about a traveller, to be privately published.
In addition to the German philosophers NietzscheKantand Goethehe read the works of the ancient Greeks especially Plato and the prose of the romanticist poet Chateaubriand.
Henri de Gaulle came to be a supporter of Dreyfus, but was less concerned with his innocence per se than with the disgrace which the army had brought onto itself. It was used extensively for strike-breaking and there were fewer than applicants for St Cyr indown from 2, at the turn of the century.
His class ranking was mediocre th out of entrantsbut he was relatively young and this was his first attempt at the exam. Accordingly, in Octoberde Gaulle enlisted for four years, as required, rather than the normal two year term for conscripts in the 33rd Infantry Regiment of the French Armybased at Arras.
His company commander declined to promote him to sergeant, the usual rank for a potential officer, commenting that the young man clearly felt that nothing less than Constable of France would be good enough for him. By the end of his first year he had risen to 45th place. Inhe graduated 13th in his class  and his passing-out report noted that he was a gifted cadet who would undoubtedly make an excellent officer.
The future Marshal Alphonse Juin passed out first in the class, although the two do not appear to have been close friends at the time. He later wrote in his memoirs: De Gaulle stressed how Maurice de Saxe had banned volley fire, how French armies of the Napoleonic period had relied on infantry column attack, and how French military power had declined in the nineteenth century because of — supposedly — excessive concentration on firepower e.
He also appears to have accepted the then fashionable lesson drawn from the recent Russo-Japanese Warof how bayonet charges by Japanese infantry with high morale had succeeded in the face of enemy firepower.
However, the French Fifth Army commander, General Charles Lanrezacremained wed to 19th-century battle tactics, throwing his units into pointless bayonet charges with bugles and full colours flying against the German artillery, incurring heavy losses.
He received his baptism of fire 15 August and was among the first to be wounded, receiving a bullet in the knee at the Battle of Dinant.
However, there is no contemporary evidence that he understood the importance of artillery in modern warfare.
Instead, in his writing at the time, he criticised the "overrapid" offensive, the inadequacy of French generals, and the "slowness of the English troops". Many of his former comrades were already dead. In December he became regimental adjutant. On 10 February he was promoted to captain, initially on probation.
On 3 September his rank of captain became permanent. In late October, returning from leave, he returned to command of 10th company again.Irving Charles Krauthammer (/ Personal life.
