All truths are the product of the logical identification of the facts of experience

“Any theory that propounds an opposition between the logical and the empirical, represents a failure to grasp the nature of logic and its role in human cognition. Man’s knowledge is not acquired by logic apart from experience or by experience apart from logic, but by the application of logic to experience. All truths are the product of the logical identification of the facts of experience.” ~ Leonard Peikoff
