Focal Point Quotes (1 quote)
The focal points of our different reflections have been called science or art according to the nature of their formal objects, to use the language of logic. If the object leads to action, we give the name of art to the compendium of rules governing its use and to their technical order. If the object is merely contemplated under different aspects, the compendium and technical order of the observations concerning this object are called science. Thus metaphysics is a science and ethics is an art. The same is true of theology and pyrotechnics.
