"To know causality is the sole function of the understanding, its only power, and it is a great power embracing much, manifold in its application, and yet unmistakable in its identity throughout all its manifestations. Conversely, all causality, hence all matter, and consequently the whole of reality, is only for the understanding, through the understanding, in the understanding. The first, simplest, ever-present manifestation of understanding is perception of the actual world. This is in every way knowledge of the cause from the effect, and therefore all perception is intellectual."

Arthur Schopenhauer
On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason (1813)

    I don't regard any value towards any philosophy, they all function according to their functions. Plain and simple. Either way we do most of these philosophies, it just so happens that we haven't mastered them yet :)
