On Discussion – A Quick Detour

leave a comment »

Most of the points I have made in support of my argument are not such as I can confidently assert; but that the belief in the duty of inquiring after what we do not know will make us better, braver and less helpless than the notion that there is not even a possibility of discovering what we do not knkow, nor any duty of inquiring after it – this is a point for which I am determined to do battle, so far as I am able, both in word and deed.
