…by what right can those who base their beliefs on the learned propositions of their forefathers begin to use tradition as a means of support? …to believe in the infallibility of learning, moreover of a learning which works out its propositions dialectically, is against common sense.
- Aleksey Khomiakov (1804-1860)
I love quotes from the past like this one that are so apropos to the present. Khomiakov has very many such quotes so you will hear from him again.
