Pierre Bayle

Pierre Bayle

French philosopher, historian and critic of religious dogmas
Philosophy can be compared to some powders that are so corrosive that, after they have eaten away the infected flesh of a wound, they then devour the living flesh, rot the bones, and penetrate to the very marrow. Philosophy at first refutes errors. But if it is not stopped at this point, it goes on to attack truths. And when it is left on its own, it goes so far that it no longer knows where it is and can find no stopping place.More Pierre Bayle quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
