Quotes of Immanuel Kant
A German Philosopher about Science
and Universal Laws
- All human knowledge begins with
intuitions, proceeds from thence to concepts, and ends with ideas.
- Give me matter, and I will
construct a world out of it!
- In scientific matters ... the
greatest discoverer differs from the most arduous imitator and apprentice only
in degree, whereas he differs in kind from someone whom nature has endowed for
fine art. But saying this does not disparage those great men to whom the human
race owes so much in contrast to those whom nature has endowed for fine art.
For the scientists' talent lies in continuing to increase the perfection of our
cognitions and on all the dependent benefits, as well as in imparting that same
knowledge to others; and in these respects they are far superior to those who
merit the honor of being called geniuses. For the latter's art stops at some
point, because a boundary is set for it beyond which it cannot go and which has
probably long since been reached and cannot be extended further.
- The science of mathematics
presents the most brilliant example of how pure reason may successfully enlarge
its domain without the aid of experience
- Act only in accordance with that maxim through which
you can at the same will that it become a universal law.
