“In favor of criticism.--Now something that you formerly loved as a truth or probability strikes you as an error; you shed it and fancy that this represents a victory for your reason But perhaps this error was necessary for you then, when you were still a different person--you are always a different person--as are all your present 'truths,' being a skin, as it were, that concealed and covered a great deal that you were not yet permitted to see. What killed that opinion for you was your life and not you reason: you no longer needed it, and now it collapses and unreason crawls out of it into the light like a worm. When we criticize something, this is no arbitrary and impersonal event; it is, at least very often, evidence of vital energies in us that are growing and shedding a skin. We negate and must negate because something in us wants to live and affirm--something that we perhaps do not know or see as yet.--This is said in favor of criticism.”

Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science, section 307

“Anyone who wants to know the human psyche will learn next to nothing from experimental psychology. He would be better advised to ... put away his scholar's gown, bid farewell to his study, and wander with human heart through the world. There, in the horrors of prisons, lunatic asylums and hospitals, in drab suburban pubs, in brothels and gambling-hells, in the salons of the elegant, the Stock Exchanges, Socialist meetings, churches, revivalist gatherings and ecstatic sects, through love and hate, through the experience of passion in every form in his own body, he would reap richer stores of knowledge than text-books a foot thick could give him, and he will know how to doctor the sick with real knowledge of the human soul.” C.G Jung, CW 7: 409
