Sample text

If one is to act so that the principle of his action shall become a law for all men, he must be free to act in this way. Therefore, Kant placed freedom at the center of his practical world. " Fichte, ScheUing, and Hegel JOHANN GOTTLIEB FICHTE took this principle of freedom and made it fundamental to his whole philosophical position. He took the stand that the self, the "ego," is a free, self-determining activity. The starting-point of Fichte's thinking is this ego or creative, free principle.

Other religious-minded thinkers attempted to do the same thing, reconciling their religious beliefs with Greek philosophy. One of the most noted was PLOTINUS, who was born in Egypt in the third century of the Christian era and THE NATURE OF THE UNIVERSE 19 taught in Rome. His theory was very much like that of Philo. Out of a pure God flow beings, or emanations, as a stream might flow from an inexhaustible source, or as light flows from the sun without affecting the sun. The further the light is from its source, the dimmer it becomes.

Locke's answer was to the effect that there is such a world. Our senses, he said, tell us of this world. We do experience this world and are justified in saying that it exists. Though we may not be able to say much about the source of our sensations, we are able to say that the sensations are caused. Thus, the real world is the cause of our sensations. This much we can say. For example, we have an idea of white. This idea is not born in us, but is caused. From this we can reason that the real world contains something which causes in us an idea of white.
