Citáty Julien Offray de La Mettrie

„Lidské tělo je stroj, který sám natahuje své pružiny, živý obraz nepřetržitého pohybu.“

„But this opinion is but an hypothesis which he tried to adjust to the light of faith“

—  Julien Offray de La Mettrie
The Natural History of the Soul (1745), Context: Descartes, a genius made to blaze new paths and to go astray in them, supposed with some other philosophers that God is the only efficient cause of motion, and that every instant He communicates motion to all bodies. But this opinion is but an hypothesis which he tried to adjust to the light of faith; and in so doing he was no longer attempting to speak as a philosopher or to philosophers. Above all he was not addressing those who can be convinced only by the force of evidence.<!--p.158 Ch. V Concerning the Moving Force of Matter

„We have now but to prove a third attribute: I mean the faculty of feeling“

—  Julien Offray de La Mettrie
The Natural History of the Soul (1745), Context: We have now but to prove a third attribute: I mean the faculty of feeling which the philosophers of all centuries have found in this same substance.... [T]he Cartesians have made, in vain, to rob matter of this faculty. But in order to avoid insurmountable difficulties, they have flung themselves into a labyrinth from which they have thought to escape by this absurd system "that animals are pure machines." An opinion so absurd has never gained admittance among philosophers... Experience gives us no less proof of the faculty of feeling in animals than of feeling in men. Ch. VI Concerning the Sensitive Faculty of Matter

„It is not enough for a wise man to study nature and truth; he should dare state truth for the benefit of the few who are willing and able to think.“

—  Julien Offray de La Mettrie, kniha Man a Machine
Man a Machine (1747), Context: It is not enough for a wise man to study nature and truth; he should dare state truth for the benefit of the few who are willing and able to think.<!--p. 85

„This is then another new faculty which might exist only potentially in matter, like all the others“

—  Julien Offray de La Mettrie
The Natural History of the Soul (1745), Context: [W]e must admit, with the same frankness, that we are ignorant whether matter has in itself the faculty of feeling, or only the power of acquiring it by those modifications or forms to which matter is susceptible; for it is true that this faculty of feeling appears only in organic bodies. This is then another new faculty which might exist only potentially in matter, like all the others which have been mentioned; and this was the hypothesis of the ancients, whose philosophy, full of insight and penetration, deserves to be raised above the ruins of the philosophy of the moderns.<!--p.160 Ch. VI Concerning the Sensitive Faculty of Matter

„Among animals, some learn to speak and sing; they remember tunes, and strike the notes as exactly as a musician. Others, for instance the ape, show more intelligence… would it be absolutely impossible to teach the ape a language? I do not think so.“

„Let us… take in our hands the staff of experience… To be blind and to think that one can do without this staff is the worst kind of blindness.“

„The ancients, persuaded that there is no body without a moving force, regarded the substance of bodies as composed of two primitive attributes.“

—  Julien Offray de La Mettrie
The Natural History of the Soul (1745), It was held that, through one of these attributes, this substance has the capacity for moving and, through the other, the capacity for being moved. Ch. V Concerning the Moving Force of Matter
