“The very hope of experimental philosophy, its expectation of constructing the sciences into a true philosophy of nature, is based on induction, or, if you please, the a priori presumption, that physical causation is universal; that the constitution of nature is written in its actual manifestations, and needs only to be deciphered by experimental and inductive research; that it is not a latent invisible writing, to be brought out by the magic of mental anticipation or metaphysical mediation.”
—Chauncey Wright (18301875)
“A major misunderstanding of child rearing has been the idea that meeting a childs needs is an end in itself, for the purpose of the childs mental health. Mothers have not understood that this is but one step in social development, the goal of which is to help a child begin to consider others. As a result, they often have not considered their children but have instead allowed their childrens reality to take precedence, out of a fear of damaging them emotionally.”
—Elaine Heffner (20th century)

—Kate Millett (b. 1934)
