He continued by telling that historically there have always been considered to be two sources of wisdom: perception and conception. “Many of the worldly wise have found this classification insufficient,” he stated, “and have added intuition.” Chief among these upholders of the intuition theory are the religionists, the mystics, and some of the psychologists.
