    our knowledge may relate to objects, it is at least quite clear that the only manner in which it immediately relates to them is by means of an intuition

    Human reason, in one sphere of its cognition, is called upon to consider questions, which it cannot decline, as they are presented by its own nature, but which it cannot answer, as they transcend every faculty of the mind.
    Grazielle Mae Lauzhas quoted2 years ago
    Pure reason is a perfect unity; and therefore, if the principle presented by it prove to be insufficient for the solution of even a single one of those questions to which the very nature of reason gives birth, we must reject it, as we could not be perfectly certain of its sufficiency in the case of the others.
    Grazielle Mae Lauzhas quoted2 years ago
    As regards certitude, I have fully convinced myself that, in this sphere of thought, opinion is perfectly inadmissible, and that everything which bears the least semblance of an hypothesis must be excluded, as of no value in such discussions.
    Grazielle Mae Lauzhas quoted2 years ago
    As regards clearness, the reader has a right to demand, in the first place, discursive or logical clearness, that is, on the basis of conceptions, and, secondly, intuitive or æsthetic clearness, by means of intuitions, that is, by examples or other modes of illustration in concreto.
    Grazielle Mae Lauzhas quoted2 years ago
    We find it compelled to retrace its steps in innumerable instances, and to abandon the path on which it had entered, because this does not lead to the desired result.
    Grazielle Mae Lauzhas quoted2 years ago
    We find that reason perpetually comes to a stand, when it attempts to gain à priori the perception even of those laws which the most common experience confirms.
    Kabangu Kabanguhas quotedlast year
    Introduction by itself could be an antidote, however weak, for an age excelling so often in the cult of unreason.
