47. oldal - God is, as we can think him to be, is blasphemy." — -The Divinity, in a certain sense, is revealed ; in a certain sense is concealed : He is at once known and unknown. But the last and highest consecration of all true religion, must be an altar— 'Ayz/a>crra> ©eo>- — " To the unknown and unknowable God.
107. oldal - We cannot know, we cannot think a thing, except under the attribute of existence ; we cannot know or think a thing to exist, except as in time ; and we cannot know or think a thing to exist in time, and think it absolutely to commence. Now this at once imposes on us the judgment of causality.
4. oldal - It is cognisable, but not conceivable ; it can be known by a sinking back into identity with the absolute, but is incomprehensible by consciousness and reflection, which are only of the relative and the different. — 4°, It is cognisable and conceivable by consciousness and reflection, under relation, difference, and plurality.
39. oldal - The unconditionally unlimited, or the Infinite, the unconditionally limited, or the Absolute, cannot positively be construed to the mind ; they can be conceived, only by a thinking away from, or abstraction of, those very conditions under which thought itself is realized ; consequently the notion of the Unconditioned is only negative, — negative of the conceivable itself.
21. oldal - ... negative of the conceivable itself. For example, on the one hand we can positively conceive neither an absolute whole, that is, a whole so great that we cannot also conceive it as a relative part of a still greater whole, nor an absolute part ; that is, a part so small that we cannot also conceive it, as a relative whole, divisible into smaller parts.
33. oldal - INFINITE — thnn any assignable magnitude. But strictly speaking it means that which is not only without determinate bounds, but •which cannot possibly admit of bound or limit. " The infinite expresses the entire absence of all limitation, and is applicable to the one infinite Being in all his attributes. The absolute expresses perfect independence, both in being and in action. The unconditioned indicates entire freedom from every necessary relation. The whole three unite in expressing the entire...
106. oldal - We are utterly unable to construe it in thought as possible, that the complement of existence has been either increased or diminished. We cannot conceive, either, on the one hand, nothing becoming something, or, on the other, something becoming nothing.
4. oldal - It is not an object, of knowledge ; but its notion, as a regulative principle of the mind itself, is more than a mere negation of the conditioned.
36. oldal - But the reality of one contradictory, so far from guaranteeing the reality of the other, is nothing else than its negation. Thus every positive notion (the concept of a thing by what it is) suggests a negative notion (the concept of a thing by what it is not) ; and the highest positive notion, the notion of the conceivable, is not without its corresponding negative in the notion of the inconceivable. But though these mutually suggest each other, the positive alone is real ; the negative is only an...
78. oldal - ... we are conscious to ourselves of nothing more clearly, than that it would be equally possible to think without thought, as to construe to the mind an absolute commencement, or an absolute termination, of time, that is, a beginning and an end beyond which time is conceived as non-existent.
