Сторінка 226 - Power arranging planetary systems, fixing, for instance, the trajectory of Saturn, or constructing a ring of two hundred thousand miles diameter, to surround his body, and be suspended like a magnificent arch over the heads of his inhabitants; and, at the other, bending a hooked tooth, concerting and providing an appropriate mechanism, for the clasping and reclasping of the filaments of the feather of the humming-bird.
Сторінка 139 - We know that there is an infinite, and are ignorant of its nature. As we know it to be false that numbers are finite, it is therefore true that there is an infinity in number. But we do not know what it is. It is false that it is even, it is false that it is odd; for the addition of a unit can make no change in its nature. Yet it is a number, and every number is odd or even (this is certainly true of every finite number).
Сторінка 212 - Hic autem non est procedere in infinitum, quia sic non esset aliquod primum movens; et per consequens née aliquod aliud movens, quia moventia secunda non movent nisi per hoc quod sunt mota a primo movente, sicut baculus non movet nisi per hoc quod est motus a manu. Ergo necesse est devenire ad aliquod primum movens, quod a nullo movetur, et hoc omnes intelligunt Deum.
Сторінка 61 - Professors we, From over the sea, From the land where professors in plenty be ; And we thrive and flourish, as well we may, In the land that produced one Kant with a K, And many Cants with a C...
Сторінка 212 - Omne autem quod movetur, ab alio movetur. Nihil enim movetur, nisi secundum quod est in potentia ad illud ad quod movetur; movet autem aliquid secundum quod est actu. Movere enim nihil aliud est quam educere aliquid de potentia in actum; de potentia autem non potest aliquid reduci in actum, nisi per aliquod ens in actu; sicut calidum in actu, ut ignis, facit lignum, quod est calidum in potentia, esse actu calidum, et per hoc movet et alterat ipsum.
Сторінка 257 - ... to creation, what God was doing before He made heaven and earth, and how it came into His mind to make what he had not made before — this renders it necessary for him to examine the notion of Time. The substance of his doctrine is this, — What is Time ? It is in the consciousness, and by the aid of memory, that we find the first notion of duration. The mind itself is the type and measure of it. It is not from exterior sources that we acquire the notion of time, but by the inner sense ; and...
Сторінка 137 - Let him see therein an infinity of universes, each of which has its firmament, its planets, its earth, in the same proportion as in the visible world; in...
Сторінка 207 - Physica siquidem, et inquisitio causarum efficientium et materialium, producit mechanicam ; at metaphysica, et inquisitio formarum, producit magiam : nam causarum finalium inquisitio sterilis est, et, tanquam virgo Deo consecrata, nihil parit.
Сторінка 52 - ... law. Divine thought is a thought fully developed, which by its essence is anterior to all development. Finite thought implies effort; infinite thought excludes it. Finite thought is displayed under the form of time ; infinite thought subsists and is maintained under the form of eternity. It knows none of the conditions of an imperfect intelligence ; nothing of limit, or time, or space, or succession, consequently nothing of memory, or reasoning, or induction, or any of those human intermediaries...
