Fallacies Ch. Classification

If, like the country which he inhabits, the mind of
man were divided or divisible into departments, separated
each from every other by [exact and] undiscompensed
boundary-lines, this secondary principle of division
would answer the purpose to a degree of perfection much beyond
what it can hope to attain possess in this respect as matters stand in reality
in this respect.

As it is, this principle of distinction which as it
is, is the only one that presents itself of as capable
of being applied to this purpose with any advantage

When, for giving facility to the operations of conception
and retention, prominence and by means of prominence preeminence is endeavoured to be
given to a few some this or that one of the leading ideas [in any line
of inquiry] a foreign language has frequently, and
not only frequently but usefully and successfully
been thus employed for this purpose.

On the present occasion the groupes formed by
the application of the principle of division first adopted
appearing too large to be easily and effectually
grasped by the perceptive faculty mind, an ulterior principle
of division a principle of subdivision was looked out
for. This, taken from the divisions that have been which
in the geography of psychology have been endeavoured to be
with how little felicity soever to be made of the territory
of the mind, having presented itself as the only one applicable
to the purpose, the latin was the language looked to as the
only
only one sufficiently
familiar
only from in which
a set of names uniting
the qualities of prominence
and brevity
could would be to be found.
