Side 12 - And as surely as every future grows out of the past and present, so will the physiology of the future gradually extend the realm of matter and law, until it is coextensive with knowledge, with feeling and with action.
Side 6 - ... the wholes, ie the flesh and the syllable, no longer exist, but the elements of the syllable exist, and so do fire and earth); the syllable, then, is something — not only its elements (the vowel and the consonant) but also something else...
Side 12 - Already no physiology is held to be scientific if it does not consider death as an essential element of life . . . the negation of life as being essentially contained in life itself, so that life is always thought of in relation to its necessary result, death, which is always contained in it in germ. The dialectical conception of life is nothing more than this.
Side 13 - The consciousness of this great truth weighs like a nightmare, I believe, upon many of the best minds of these days. They watch what they conceive to be the progress of materialism, in such fear and powerless anger as a savage feels, when, during an eclipse, the great shadow creeps over the face of the sun. The advancing tide of matter threatens to drown their souls; the tightening grasp of law impedes their freedom; they are alarmed lest man's moral nature be debased by the increase of his wisdom.
Side 5 - nature" is much more a first principle (or "Cause") than it is matter. (Indeed, in some places even Empedocles, being led and guided by Truth herself, stumbles upon this, and is forced to assert that it is the logos which is a thing's essence or nature.

Side 21 - And men generate before they yet have certain characters, such as a beard or grey hair. Further, children are like their more remote ancestors from whom nothing has come, for the resemblances recur at an interval of many generations, as in the case of the woman in Elis who had intercourse with the Aethiop ; her daughter...
Side 127 - They are replacing the traditional methods of the neogrammarians which were so prevalent at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century.
Side 54 - European struggle for the continent in an age of foreign imperialism that unfolded largely in the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century.
Side 5 - ... eg that the nature of Fire was hot, and light; of Earth, cold, and heavy. At any rate, that is how they actually explain the formation of the world-order. In a like manner they describe the formation of animals and plants, saying (eg ) that the stomach and every kind of receptacle for food and for residue is formed by the water flowing in the body, and the nostril openings are forcibly made by the passage of the breath . Air and water , of course, according to them, are the material of which...
Side 4 - ... to study Nature in the early days spent their time in trying to discover what the material principle or the material Cause was, and what it was like; they tried to find out how the Universe is formed out of it; what set the process going (Strife, it might be, or Friendship, Mind, or Spontaneity); assuming throughout that the underlying material had, by necessity, some definite nature; eg that the nature of Fire was hot, and light; of Earth, cold, and heavy. At any rate, that is how they actually...
