    • 1988, Frederick L. Will, Beyond Deduction, page 152:
      To speak Hegelese for a moment, since the deductive processes so discriminated require for their own development, for their own self-realization, to be combined with and enriched by their ampliative complements, in the broad view of these matters required by an investigation of philosophical governance the opposition between them must be overcome.
    • (Can we date this quote?), Hugh Binning (1627–1653), “Sermon VI.”, in The Works of the Rev. Hugh Binning[1], page 579:
      Therefore I take it to be rather declarative, or ampliative, or both.
