"Kant believed that anything which cannot be apprehended by our bodily apparatus can never be experience for us." "A courageous crusader against tyranny, bigotry, and cruelty, Voltaire is still recognized as one of the greatest French authors, and the embodiment of 18th century enlightenment." "Burke: 'great art strives after the infinite, and the infinite, having no bounds, can never be clear or distinct.'"
