Wilhelm Dilthey

German philosopher and psychologist

The existence of inherent limits of experience in no way settles the question about the subordination of facts of the human world to our knowledge of matter.More Wilhelm Dilthey quotes [09/21/2011 04:09:46]

All science is experiential; but all experience must be related back to and derives its its validity from the conditions and context of consciousness in which it arises, i.e., the totality of our nature.More Wilhelm Dilthey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
On the other hand, for the whole human being who wills, feels, and represents, external reality is given simultaneously and with as much certitude as his own self.More Wilhelm Dilthey quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
