More From Seth

“All three [Fichte, Schelling, Hegel] were dowered in no ordinary measure with the  confidence of reason in itself which forbids it ever to recognize an ultimate obstacle, or to give up the hope of completely rationalizing the universe, and so presenting, what
Fichte called, a philosophy in one piece. To many this confidence seems presumption. But it ought to be remembered, that it is possible to present the idea of “absolute knowledge” as the necessary completion of the philosophical edifice, without making personal
claims to the possession of omniscience. It is possible to see what is involved in the terms under our hands, without being able to realize it for ourselves more than partially.”
