Σελίδα 30 - Let the person come by his volition or choice how he will, yet, if he is able, and there is nothing in the way to hinder his pursuing and executing his will, the man is fully and perfectly free, according to the primary and common notion of freedom.
Σελίδα 28 - ... all things past, present, and to come are precisely what the Author of nature really intended them to be, and has made provision for.
Σελίδα 84 - I conceive, be found, if we advert to one of the characteristic properties of geometrical forms — their capacity of being painted in the imagination with a distinctness equal to reality ; in other words, the exact resemblance of our ideas of form to the sensations which suggest them.
Σελίδα 181 - B equal to 8, can we conceive that the determination of volition A should not be necessary ? We can only conceive the volition B to be determined by supposing that the man creates (calls from non-existence into existence) a certain supplement of influences.

Σελίδα 225 - In the act of sensible perception, I am conscious of two things; — of myself as the perceiving subject, and of an external reality, in relation with my sense, as the object perceived. Of the existence of both these things I am convinced ; because I am conscious of knowing each of them, not mediately, in something else, as represented, but immediately in itself, as existing.
Σελίδα 90 - ... instance in which there can be even a suspicion of an exception to the rule, that we should soon have stronger ground for believing the axiom, even as an experimental truth, than we have for almost any of the general truths which we confessedly learn from the evidence of our senses. Independently of A, priori evidence we should certainly believe it with an intensity of conviction far greater than we accord to any ordinary physical truth...
