"Before abstraction everything ..." Quote of Friedrich von Hardenberg

Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Before abstraction everything is one, but one like chaos; after abstraction everything is united again, but this union is a free binding of autonomous, self-determined beings. Out of a mob a society has developed, chaos has been transformed into a manifold world.
Novalis [Friedrich Von Hardenberg]
