«La ética fabric del valor [...] ha llevado a cabo l. a. síntesis de dos clases de rules básicas crecidas históricamente sobre suelos muy diferentes y formuladas en mutua oposición: los angeles aprioridad kantiana de los angeles ley ethical y l. a. diversidad del valor, contemplada por Nietzsche sólo desde lejos [...] devuelve al apriorismo ético su rico contenido originario y auténtico; y a los angeles consciencia del valor, los angeles certeza del contenido invariable en medio de los angeles relatividad de los angeles valoración humana. De este modo queda indicado el camino. [...]. De todas las evidencias que me ha proporcionado el nuevo estado del problema, apenas ninguna me ha resultado más sorprendente y a l. a. vez más convincente que ésta: que l. a. ética de los antiguos period ya ética fabric del valor muy desarrollada, no en cuanto al concepto o en cuanto a una tendencia consciente, pero sí en cuanto a los angeles cosa misma y al proceder efectivo.
[...] Nos encontramos aquí con un engranaje insospechadamente profundo de viejas y nuevas conquistas intelectuales; y en el giro de l. a. ética ante el que estamos, se trata de una síntesis histórica de mayor calado que l. a. síntesis de Kant y Nietzsche: de una síntesis de los angeles ética antigua y moderna».
