argumentation

A Quote by Domus Ulixes on wisdom, argumentation, reasoning, laws of nature, and knowledge

But nowadays, I know, that I have limitations. And that I know, that what I say and think now, might not be a true or valid as it will be tomorrow. My arguments for myself are just part of a flawless perfect reasoning. Which I haven't achieved yet. It is only trying to get close, to find that perfect argumentation that will eventually lead me to be exactly right. And have no doubts whatsoever of what I speak. I my eyes, such an argumentation, is either yet unconceivable, or so pervasive, that it defies the laws of nature. There are limits to knowledge and wisdom.

A Quote by Kenneth Smith on philosophy, thinking, modernity, culture, and argumentation

I am caught in a terrific bind of characterologically and rationally needing to think in the most comprehensive terms possible, forming a continuous system of argument with a gradient that runs from concrete to abstract, and unfortunately being caught also in a culture in which hardly anyone seems capable of applying himself to understand such a demanding form of argumentation.
