...such a fact does not admit of absolute demonstration. A mathematical demonstration — such as that **the three angles of a triangle are together equal to two right angles** — does not admit the possibility of a doubt. But moral and metaphysical subjects do not admit of... | |

...amount of reasoning could convince us of these facts. But none of our senses could satisfy us that **the three angles of a triangle are together equal to two right angles.** There are two modes of reasoning, so called, the distinction between which is clearly marked, and should... | |

...inhabited, even this is not a primary conviction ; we believe it because of secondary testimony. Nay, that **the three angles of a triangle are together equal to two right angles,** is not a primitive judgment, for it needs other truths coming between to carry our conviction. But... | |

...considered generally, and without restriction to any individual magnitude. Thus, the proposition that **the three angles of a triangle are together equal to two right angles,** is an abstract truth, applying equally to all triangles whatsoever. Abstract Mathematics is opposed... | |
