Sample text

In many cases it is practically impossible for a contemporary person to understand exactly what the differences in conviction were between the heretics and other believers. Usually the heretics were the more forthright and fanatical religious enthusiasts and the difference between them and loyal subjects of the Church was embodied in the acceptance or nonacceptance of some trifling verbal symbol: for example, whether the three persons of the Trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - had the same essence; or whether Jesus was born to Mary as God or as a man who later became God.

These are not absolute objects, postulated and given in themselves. A man can know only that with which he has come into at least an intermediate practical relation, and which he has practically modified. One can say something only about the humanized world of objects. An object in itself is the most abstract of all abstractions. This implies an essential criterion for decision whether a particular symbol signifies a real object or there is no object of that type, so that at least in a cognitive sense the symbol is meaningless (which does not involve that it could not refer to an imaginary or ideal object and that it could not have some non-cognitive meaning).

One of the characteristics of the historic process of human cognition is that, consciously or not, we simplify objects in order to study their various aspects and relations. At a later stage of inquiry we correct and enrich such oversimplified images of objects. Eventually we tend to integrate the various partial aspects of knowledge into a unified synthetic whole. Every good scholar carries out such analytical simplifications in a conscious, methodical manner, taking account of everything that has been excluded, with a full measure of criticism of the natural, spontaneous tendency to hypostatize and absolutize such one-sided, isolated abstract elements.
