Posology
4
Introduction
62 or 1. Logic
Beings are
1. Matter
2. Mind
63 or 2. Logic
Per some to the sign
mind corresponds no
being signified.
64 or 3 Logic
Per them, sole beings
bodies, of which some
have properties the aggregate
of which is mind;
other, not.
65 or 4. Logic
Which conception is correct
belongs not to the design
of this work to inquire.
Sole reason for mentioning
it, fear lest a reader
should suppose that
truth as to matters
belonging to posology
depends upon this.
66 or 5. Logic
Somatology or somatics
is the branch of art &
science having for subject
matters body & its
properties.
67 6. Logic
Psychology, mind and
its properties.
68 or 7. Logic
Long ago some thinking
man found a convenience
in considering
one property apart from
the rest thus abstracting
it.
69 or 8. Logic
Thence division of somatology
into 1. abstract
2, non abstract or say concrete.
9.
The property
70 or 9. Logic
The property thus abstracted
being quantity,
modifications of it noted
were
1. form (shaper or figure)
2. number: each could
be considered without
the other.
71 10 Logic
Illusion
dissipated
Per some, form is, in
some of its modifications,
a being as incapable
of existence as body is.
72 11. Logic
Illusion
Hence per Euclid a
point is &c — so a line is —
a surface is — as well
as a solid is &c.
73 12. Logic
Illusion
Clouded by this misconception
this part
of the field.
74 13. Logic
Illusion
Question controverted
has form a separate
existence? Yes or No.
75 14 Logic
Illusion
Per Montesquieu,
Yes. applied to radii
of a circle.
Opponents who
— their motives
76 or 1.
Hostile to this improvement
will be all whose
selfsatisfaction and reputation
rested upon
the science in its
present state.
77 or 2. Opponents
So, to the improver.
78 or 3 Opponents
So, in their instance
will have place the
desire and endeavour
to make him suffer.
79 or 4 Opponents
Regrettible this disposition,
but unpreventible,
being rooted in
man's nature: sole
practicable object of
endeavour, the minimizing
it; which
the thus holding it
up to view contributes
to.
80 or 4. Opponents
Juris
Expected should consequently
be of every
lawyer aversion to
extirpation of Judge
made laws.
81 5. Opponents
Theological
So, in theology which
teaches how to comprehend
what it acknowledges
to be incomprehensible.
82 6. Opponents
Accordingly proportioned
to the comparative
inaptitude of the present
course of language
learning will be the
present teacher's
enmity to improvement
and the improver
of posology.
83 or 7. Opponents
Though not so strong
as in the case of lawyers
and priests and poets —
genus irritabile valum.
Opponents — Motives
84 Posologistical
Thus have English Mathematicians
been
hostile to the diminution
of time and trouble
produced in France by
the substitution of
algebra to geometry.
85 or 9. Opponents
Posogistical
To divers learned societies
many are the
years of hard labour
it will cost, ere
they are convinced
of the uselessness of
the present practice.
86 or 10. Opponents
Posologistical
This cost, logic if
well applied would
have saved them.
