-- The term _hevristisch_, in the first edition of the translation of Kant's _Critik_, is not given in the vocabulary appended to the translation; but under the word _ostensiv_ it is stated that in its meaning it stands opposed to the word _euristic_
But in the second edition, published in 1818, it is remarked, under the words _evristic_, _euristic_, _hevristisch_, that the term should, in Sir Wm. Hamilton's opinion, be _euretic_ or _heuretic_; the word _hevristisch_ being an error of long standing in German philosophy.
