This chapter examines the affectivity of inquiry in Charles S. Peirce's Illustrations of the Logic of Series published in Popular Science Monthly in 1877–1878. In this series Peirce presents a a robust synechistic individual, one who stands up to her hegemonic community whose belief-habits need to be challenged and proposes the scientific method as the preferred method of communal belief and habit formation. This chapter analyzes how is it possible for community members to internalize hegemonic exclusionary belief-habits that can function nonconsciously.

Keywords:   Charles S. Peirce, Popular Science Monthly, affectivity of inquiry, communal belief formation, communal habit formation, exclusionary belief-habits
