Immanuel Kant Quote

Our knowledge springs from two fundamental sources of the mind; the first is the capacity of receiving representations (receptivity for impressions), the second is the power of knowing an object through these representations (spontaneity [in the production] of concepts).


Critique of Pure Reason (1781), trans. Norman Kemp Smith (1929)
