Reason as the Leading Motive

Sept. 28: Thought of the Day

Posted by Jerry on September 28, 2005

This quote, even today holds its relevance, and probably more so, as it speaks the truth about the attitude of many contemporary thinkers. Thought without reality is no thought at all. A Consciousness with any existing contents of awareness to be aware/conscious about is not conscious at all! Existence precedes consciousness. The faculty to perceive and be aware can only do so if there exists contents to stimulate the eventual perception.

“Man has such a predilection for systems and abstract deductions that he is ready to distort the truth intentionally, he is ready to deny the evidence of his senses only to justify his logic”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky
