Mill: The Phenomena of Nature

Zitat

„The phenomena of nature exist in two distinct relations to one another; that of simultaneity, and that of succession. Every phenomenon is related, in a uniform manner, to some phenomena that co-exist with it, and to some that have preceded and will follow it.“ (Chap. V, § 1) #Mill #phenomena #simultaneity #succession

Nancy: Avant la loi

Zitat

„«Avant» la loi, en somme, la raison juge – et elle ne fait même que ça, elle est le jugement, Mais c’est aussi pourquoi il n’y a pas d’«avant» la loi. Dès qu’il y a la raison, il y a la loi.“ (p. 23) #Nancy #jugement #loi

Hobbes: Laws of Nature

Zitat

„For the Lawes of Nature (as Justice, Equity, Modesty, Mercy, and (in summe) Doing To Others, As Wee Would Be Done To,) if themselves, without the terrour of some Power, to cause them to be observed, are contrary to our naturall Passions, that carry us to Partiality, Pride, Revenge, and the like.“ (p. 340) #Hobbes #LawsOfNature
