Sight

Philosophy is a visionary thing. It is not merely speculative, trying to see in a mirror darkly. It sees the thing itself. It sees clearly. It sees in anxiety and destruction. It sees in the midst of the destruction that dialectic has laid all around. The philosopher has gone through to the blindness that is sight to the visionary spirit. Or he sees nothing.
