The Nuttall Encyclopedia
In German Vernunft , defined by Dr. Stirling "the faculty that unites and brings together, as against the understanding," in German Verstand , "the faculty that separates, and only in separation knows," and that is synthetic of the whole, whereof the latter is merely analytic of the parts, sundered from the whole, and without idea of the whole, the former being the faculty which construes the diversity of the universe into a unity or the one, whereas the latter dissolves the unity into diversity or the many.
