Classical Empiricism. The Inner and the Outer
Action and Society
This chapter discusses a different approach to the general structure of ideas, which once dominated the British empiricist tradition in philosophy. According to this tradition, the general structure of ideas is derived, one way or another, from a certain small part of itself. This fundamental part of the structure is conceived as underived and basic, and it consists of a temporally ordered sequence of subjective mental states including sensory experiences. These mental states, in turn, are conceived as images or impressions of simple sensory qualities. The chapter also explains the philosophical questions related to the concept of action and associated concepts.
