Affirmative Nescire

Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799), Sudelb├╝cher A 5 (my translation):
If someone thinks he understands something that he doesn't (the normal procedure of metaphysicians), one can call this positive ignorance.

Wenn man, wie die Metaphysiker oft verfahren, glaubt man verstehe etwas, das man nicht versteht, so kann man dieses nennen affirmative nescire.
