"Curiously enough, however, Hamilton does not explain how it comes about that God, who in the terms of the analogy bears to the conditioned mind the relation which the conditioned mind bears to its objects, can Himself be unconditioned. He can be regarded only as related to consciousness, and in so far is, therefore, not absolute or unconditioned. Thus the very principles of Hamilton's philosophy are apparently violated in his theological argument."

This doesn't seem to be NPOV.

Place in thought[edit]

"Hamilton's positive contribution to the progress of thought is comparatively slight.…" This sounds like someone's subjective, personal opinion. Maybe Hamilton's positive contribution to the progress of my thought is comparatively great.Lestrade (talk) 00:03, 21 May 2012 (UTC)Lestrade

Clever demonstration of often-forgotten kant principle[edit]

The "screaming peen" argument in support of Kant's notion that two halves can never become whole unless there's an incongruity, therefore perfection is noumenal.
