Karl Jaspers

Karl Jaspers

was a German psychiatrist and philosopher who had a strong influence on modern theology, psychiatry and philosophy
It has become obligatory to fulfil a function which shall in some way be regarded as useful to the masses...Even an articulated mass always tends to become unspiritual and inhuman. It is life without existence, superstition without faith. It may stamp all flat; it is disinclined to tolerate independence and greatness, but prone to constrain people to become as automatic as ants.More Karl Jaspers quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The history of philosophy is not, like the history of the sciences, to be studied with the intellect alone. That which is receptive in us and that which impinges upon us from history is the reality of man's being, unfolding itself in thought.More Karl Jaspers quotes [08/08/2011 04:08:05]
When in our isolation we see our lives seeping away as a mere succession of moments, tossed meaninglessly about by accidents and overwhelming events; when we contemplate a history that seems to be at an end, leaving only chaos behind it, then we are impelled to raise ourselves above history.More Karl Jaspers quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Even scientific knowledge, if there is anything to it, is not a random observation of random objects; for the critical objectivity of significant knowledge is attained as a practice only philosophically in inner action.More Karl Jaspers quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Reason is like an open secret that can become known to anyone at any time; it is the quiet space into which everyone can enter through his own thoughtMore Karl Jaspers quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
