Quote by Ernst Cassirer : “The special task of philosophy”

The special task of philosophy must always be to oppose the intellectual division of labour, no matter how useful and even indispensable it may be to the progress of science. Philosophy can never deny its own universal character, and if it yields to the spirit of mere facts, if it ceases to be systematic and encyclopedic, – Ernst Cassirer
