Abstract

Kinner will join Comenius after the childbirth of his wife and he asks Comenius to stay in Elbing or possible not overseas so Kinner can stay with his family. They can also meet in Toruń over the winter. Kinner further discusses Comenius' Sensualia. He proposes for beginners to learn from nature and senses and not from books and letters. He is worried that Comenius' threefold way and accuracy of definition and axioms would make the work too voluminous for a beginner.
