Description from the publisher: The title suggests a perspective concerned with essentiality, hence conscious of principles, archetypes, reasons for being; conscious by virtue of intellection and not ratiocination. No doubt it is worth recalling here that in metaphysics there is no empiricism: principial knowledge cannot stem from any experience, even though experiences, scientific or other, can be the occaisonal causes of the intellect’s intuitions. The sources of our transcendent intuitions are innate data, consubstantial with pure inteligence, but de facto ‘forgotten’ since the ‘loss ofParadise’; thus principial knowledge, according to Plato, is nothing other than a ‘recollection’ and this is a gift, most often actualized by intellectual and spiritual disciplines.
