We distinguish in order to separate or keep things apart which might otherwise be confounded.We discriminate with the further view of showing where in their differences consist. Hence discrimination must always be nice, particular, and exact, dissecting, as it were the things discriminated. distinction maybe exact or not, minute or tough, broad or nice.
I cannot really get what these explanations mean. Would anyone possibly show me their meaning, especially by some example?
Any help would be appreciated.
