Aristotle Quote: “The true and the approximately true…”

Aristotle Quote, throwing dice on top of winding staircase

The true and the approximately true are apprehended by the same faculty; it may also be noted that men have a sufficient natural instinct for what is true, and usually do arrive at the truth. Hence the man who makes a good guess at truth is likely to make a good guess at probabilities.
