PETERS Your Majesty, Ladies and Gentlemen: Science can be understood both in the subjective and in the objective sense. When we take it in the subjective sense it is quite a special manner of knowing, when we take it in the objective sense it is quite a special whole of things known, precisely in so far as these are known by that scientific manner of knowing. It is not our intention here to go into the fundamental relation between the subjective and the objective side of science, between the knowing and the known.
For the man of science it suffices to know, that by acknowledging the essential limits of the object attainable through empirical science intercourse is also possible with those dissenting from hirn with respect to the ultimate questions of life. To perform the abstraction which inaugurates science, need not mean to hirn to sever completely the connection with this outlook on life. For, both the start of positive-scientific investigation and the choice of its object often will spring from motives beyond science itself and they, no doubt, will determine the climate of the investigation; every man, including the one who pretends to have only an eye for his specific phenomenon, projects a provision al all-embracing world-picture, which never springs from the mere data themselves.
