We cannot doubt the principle of contradiction, for as soon as we do, we destroy the very opposition between doubt and certainty.

-If one takes this as an intrinsic limitation on thought, very well.

-This principle constitutes a certainty that is completely absolute, non-hypothetical. This makes it a first arke, for it proceeds from no other.

-Attempts to qualify the principle of contradiction, or to limit it, or even to deny it outright all constitute failures at transcendence, for they all constitute failures to rise above the merely apparent and accidental.
