Quote of the Day

by James Greer

The act of comprehending is a free act of reflection upon the previously derived intuition, and it is posited as a free act. The freedom of the act of reflecting upon intuition cannot be posited, however, unless this act of reflection is itself posited as such. Accordingly, we obtain a twofold view of the act of reflection, and along with this, a twofold view of the object of the same. (That is to say, the double aspect of the act of reflection is present for the philosopher, whereas what is present for the I is the double aspect of the object.)
