John Locke – Madmen and the faculty of reasoning

Share this quote:
John LockeMadmen do not appear to me to have lost the faculty of reasoning, but having joined together some of the ideas very wrongly, they mistake them for truths. . .For, by the violence of their imaginations, having taken their fancies for realities, they make right deductions from them.

John Locke   (1632-1704)
An Essay Concerning Human Understanding
