Previous Section   271. THE ART OF REASONING   Next Section

THE ART OF REASONING.  The greatest advance that men have made lies in their acquisition of the art to reason rightly.  It is not so very natural, as Schopenhauer supposes when he says, "All are capable of reasoning, but few of judging” it is learnt late and has not yet attained supremacy.  False conclusions are the rule in older ages; and the mythologies of all peoples, their magic and their superstition, their religious cult and their law are the inexhaustible sources of proof of this theory.
