Example text

And the truths that we imagine it leads to were known before it was itself. This method would thus be utterly barren if it were based only on such maxims as these. Thus there are two ways to make it appear fruitful. The first one begins with propositions that, being true in many respects—especially the most salient respects—make it reasonable to suppose that they are true in every case. Indeed, if we understood them and drew only precise conclusions from them, it is obvious that they would be like the principles we have just discussed.

Moreover, a philosopher's main purpose should be to specify his ideas exactly. Particular ideas and only particular ideas are specified strictly by themselves. On the other hand, abstract notions are naturally vague and have nothing fixed about them, being specified by other ideas. But are these ideas even more abstract? Doubtless not, for such ideas would have even more need of specification. Thus we must resort to particular ideas. Indeed, nothing explains an idea better than the one that gave rise to it.

Indeed, if we understood them and drew only precise conclusions from them, it is obvious that they would be like the principles we have just discussed. But this is to be thoroughly avoided; on the contrary, they are taken to be true in many respects in which they are completely false. Whereupon they are applied to quite inappropriate things, and conclusions are drawn that seem all the more novel for not being contained in the original proposition. 3 32 This way of giving a kind of fertility to an abstract system is the most adroit one; the second is rather crude but it is employed just as widely.
