“Thought is a fact and it is meaningless to speak of a fact as being right or wrong. At most I can have doubts about whether thought is rightly applied.”

4.12 Sensationalist perception: Real Senses
“For only my real eye and my real hand could have the ideas of sun and earth as their modifications—my ideas “eye” and “hand” could not.”

5.12 Sensationalist knowing: Objective Percept
“A percept always appears as a very specific, concrete content. This content is directly given and is completely contained in what is given. "...the objective percept occurs when the object is present in the field of one’s vision.”

“Feeling is the means by which concepts first gain concrete life.”

7.12 Sensationalist cognition: Objective Real World Continuum

8.12 Sensationalist personality: World Will

11.12 Sensationalist purpose: World Being
“A Dualist can talk of world purposes and nature purposes. Where we see an example of a systematic linking of cause and effect according to law, a Dualist is free to assume that what we are seeing is only a faint copy of a relationship within which the absolute world being has realized his purpose.”

12.12 Sensationalist moral idea: Enslaved Spirit
“External powers may prevent me from doing what I want. Then they simply damn me to do nothing. Not until they enslave my spirit, drive my motives out of my head, and put their own motives in the place of mine, do they really intend to make me unfree.”

14.12 Sensationalist individuality: Moral Contribution
“Monism looks upon the history of the moral life, not as the education of the human race by a transcendent God, but as the gradual living out in practice of all concepts and ideas that spring from the moral imagination.”
