cerning the entrance of knowledge into the human mind need not here be discussed.

It follows that the man who wishes to gain much knowledge must guard his senses from harm, and must sharpen them, so that during the few days of life they may do as much as is possible to help man establish a rational religion for his guidance. The foundation of human knowledge is derived from the direct action of the senses.

Average Rating of 5 from 1 reviews: *****

I have written a doctoral dissertation on Hegel\'s philosophy. The obscure philosopher would remain as such have I not read A Rational Theology.
