"People will be truly critical if they live in the plenitude of the praxis, that is, if their action encompasses a critical reflection which increasingly organizes their thinking and thus leads them to move from a purely naive knowledge of reality to a higher level, one which enables them to perceive the causes of reality."
That false secondary power By which we multiply distinctions, then Deem that our puny boundaries are things That we perceive, and not that we have made.william wordsworth
Bertolucci is extraordinary in his ability to perceive, he's a poet...he is very easy to work for.Marlon Brando
The best assurance any one can have of his interest in God, is doubtless the conformity of his soul to Him. When our heart is once turned into a conformity with the mind of God. when we feel our will conformed to His will, we shall then presently perceive a spirit of adoption within ourselves, teaching us to say, "Abba, Father."ralph cudworth
The purposes of the Almighty are perfect, and must prevail, though we erring mortals may fail to accurately perceive them in advance.Abraham Lincoln
Mathematics is the gate and key of the sciences... Neglect of mathematics works injury to all knowledge , since he who is ignorant of it cannot know the other sciences or the things of this world. And what is worse, men who are thus Ignorant are unable to perceive their own ignorance and so do not seek a remedy.roger bacon
If I would follow your advice and Jesus could perceive it, he, as a Jewish teacher, surely would not approve of such behavior.Albert Einstein
I do hate sums, There is no greater mistake than to call arithmetic an exact science. There are Permutations and Aberrations discernible to minds entirely noble like mine; subtle variations which ordinary accountants fail to discover; hidden laws of Numbers which it requires a mind like mine to perceive. For instance, if you add a sum from the bottom up, and then again from the top down, the result is always different.
All other parts remaining as they were, And they, so perfect in their misery, Not once perceive their foul disfigurement, But boast themselves more comely than before And all their friends, and native home forget To roll with pleasure in a sensual sty.john milton
Their whole business abroad (as far as I can perceive)
Poorpeoplestaying intheir houses aslong astill thevery fire touched them, and then running into boats or clambering from one pair of stair by the waterside to another. And among other things, the poor pigeons I perceive were loath to leave their houses, but hovered about the windows and balconies till they were some of them burned, their wings, and fell down.Samuel Pepys
That’s what I love you for: your inability to perceive all my hideous flaws.audrey niffenegger
Philosophy springs from the love of being; it is man's loving endeavor to perceive the order of being and attune himself to it. Gnosis desires dominion over being; in order to seize control of being the Gnostic constructs his system. The building of systems is a gnostic form of reasoning, not a philosophical one.eric voegelin
The cine-camera and television set allow us to perceive slow motion. The concept of anything other than real time had never occurred to anybody until the first slow-motion movies were shown, and this radically altered people's perceptions of nature.j. g. ballard
Our initial sensory data are always "first derivatives," statements about differences which exist among external objects or statements about changes which occur either in them or in our relationship to them. Objects and circumstances which remain absolutely constant relative to the observer, unchanged either by his own movement or by external events, are in general difficult and perhaps always impossible to perceive. What we perceive easily is difference and change and difference is a relationship.Gregory Bateson
The time for the kingdom may be far off, but the task is plain: to retain our share in God in spite of peril and contempt. There is a war to wage against the vulgar, the glorification of the absurd, a war that is incessant, universal. Loyal to the presence of the ultimate in the common, we may be able to make it clear that man is more than man, that in doing the finite he may perceive the infinite .abraham joshua heschel
The modern scientific counterpart to belief in God is the belief in the universe as an organism: this disgusts me. This is to make what is quite rare and extremely derivative, the organic, which we perceive only on the surface of the earth, into something essential, universal, and eternal! This is still an anthropomorphizing of nature!friedrich nietzsche
If our squawking pacifists were rational, they would perceive that war can be ended only by abolishing the several species of mammals called human; our spacecraft have shown us that Mars and Venus are perfectly warless worlds.revilo p. oliver
I think that the task of philosophy is not to provide answers, but to show how the way we perceive a problem can be itself part of a problem.slavoj Žižek
The imagination is the power that enables us to perceive the normal in the abnormal, the opposite of chaos in chaos.wallace stevens
Some men's words I remember so well that I must often use them to express my thought. Yes, because I perceive that we have heard the same truth, but they have heard it better.ralph waldo emerson
All we have to believe with is our senses , the tools we use to perceive the world : our sight , our touch , our memory . If they lie to us, then nothing can be trusted . And even if we do not believe, then still we cannot travel in any other way than the road our senses show us; and we must walk that road to the end .
While U.S. leaders may frame the conflict as a war on terrorism , people in the Islamic world clearly perceive the U.S. as being at war with Islam .
