Hence, pure reason is the faculty which contains the principles of cognizing anything absolutely a priori.
From this we perceive the possibility of cognizing a priori a law of changes—a law, however, which concerns their form merely.
The cognizing subject is related to that which is the object of cognition--to a thing which is outside the mind.
There are three grades of the cognizing faculty (virtutis cognoscitivae).
Incapable of cognizing both time and eternity, it makes them absolute negations of each other.
See'st thou, then, how all things in cognizing use rather their own faculty than the faculty of the things which they cognize?
