1 article for "Prescience"

Prescience [DeVore]


An excellent word, used by Ptolemy in the affirmation ...

"only prescience by astronomy will afford premonition of such events as happen to men by the influence of the Ambient."

It suggests preparedness for the exercise of discretion, rather than the fatalistic terror inspired by a prediction.
