Charles W. Collier

Oxford University Press

This chapter explains how a few basic forms of mental synthesis underlie all possible experience of objects in the real world. These forms of mental synthesis (space, time, things, attributes, and causation) are inherently relational; they refer beyond the immediately given data to an implied totality of possible experience. A whole is thereby represented or symbolized in and through each of its constituent parts.

Keywords:   mental synthesis, space, time, things, attributes, causation, linguistic theory, experience of objects, symbols
