Reading Experience:

Evidence:
George Grote to G. C. Lewis, September 1840: 'Since you departed from London, I have been reading some of Kant's "Kritik der reinen Vernunft," a book which always leads me into very instructive trains of metaphysical thought, and which I value exceedingly, though I am far from agreeing in all he lays down. I have also been looking into Plato's "Timaeus" and "Parmenides," and some of Locke, and have been writing down some of the thoughts generated in my mind by this philosophical melange.'
