Appeal to Experience.       §16. To deal truly, this is the only way, that I can discover,
whereby the Ideas of things are brought into the Understanding: If other
Men have either innate Ideas, or infused Principles, they have reason
to enjoy them; and if they are sure of it, it is impossible for others to
deny them the privilege that they have above their Neighbours.
I can speak but of what I find in my self, and is agreeable to those
Notions; which, if we will examine the whole course of Men in their
several Ages, Countries, and Educations, seem to depend on these
foundations which I have laid, and to correspond with this Method,
in all the parts and degrees thereof.
Locke Hum II, 11, §16, p. 162
