Famous quotes containing the words knowledge and/or metaphysical:

    Science asks no questions about the ontological pedigree or a priori character of a theory, but is content to judge it by its performance; and it is thus that a knowledge of nature, having all the certainty which the senses are competent to inspire, has been attained—a knowledge which maintains a strict neutrality toward all philosophical systems and concerns itself not with the genesis or a priori grounds of ideas.
    Chauncey Wright (1830–1875)

    Like everything metaphysical the harmony between thought and reality is to be found in the grammar of the language.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)
