Hence, any general or aggregate may, by the analytical process just mentioned, become the matter, or premiss, of a generalogism. The same also holds with respect to universals ; the generalogism is, therefore, a universal and infinite process.
Page 358 - Some weak and inexperienced persons vainly seek by dialectics and far-fetched arguments, either to upset or establish things that are only to be founded on anatomical demonstration, and believed on the evidence of the senses. He who truly desires to be informed of the question in hand, and whether the facts alleged be sensible, visible, or not, must be held bound either to look for himself, or to take on trust the conclusions to which they have come who have looked; and indeed there is no higher...
