Knowledge

Knowledge;

“There are two modes of knowledge,

through argument and experience.

Argument brings conclusions and compels us to concede them,

but it does not cause certainty nor remove doubts in order

that the mind may remain at rest in truth, unless this is provided by experience.”

Roger Bacon in Opius Maius (1268)
