Single Idea 1599

[catalogued under 2. Reason / A. Nature of Reason / 9. Limits of Reason]

Full Idea

To debate about suspending all our presuppositions requires a common ground which, upon being established, immediately renders the debate superfluous.

Gist of Idea

Attempts to suspend all presuppositions are hopeless, because a common ground must be agreed for the process
