Excerpt from The Improvement of Human Reason, Exhibited in the Life of Hayy Ibn Yakzan: Written in Arabic Above 600 Years Ago

Now, my Dear Friend, I do not here, when I speak of the Ideas of the Contemplative, mean what they learn from the study of Physics; nor by the notions of those who have attained to the union, what they learn from the study of Metaphysics (for these two ways of learning are vastly different, and must by no means be confounded). But what I mean by the Ideas of the Contemplative is what is attained by the study of Meta physics of which kind is that which Ibn Baja understood; and in the apprehension of these things this condition is necessarily required, viz. That it be manifestly and clearly true and then there is a middle sort of speculation, between that, and those who have attained to the union.
