Generalise? Particualrize?

To generalise is to be an idiot,

To particularize is the alone distinction of merit.

-William Blake

  2. Blake was against generalisations. The philosophers of his age of reason were particularly ridiculed. He was a true artist in that he really looked at detsils and the particulars in the world. No two trees are alike. The fool sees not the same tree as the wise person!
