Common Concepts of the Mind

"All of our knowledge has it's origins in our perceptions (sensibilities)"



The Common concepts of the mind are the following:

  • · Things which are equal to the same thing are also equal to one another. (first) 
  • · If equal things are added to equal things, the wholes are equal. (Second) 
  • · If equals are subtracted from equals, the remainders are equal. (Third) 
  • · If equals are subtracted from unequals, the remainders are unequal. (Forth) 
  • · And if equals are added to unequals, the wholes are unequal. (Fifth) 
  • · If two things are equal to another thing, they will be equal to one another. (Sixth) 
  • · If two things are both a half of the same thing, they will also be equal to one another (Seventh) 
  • · If a thing is placed near another, superposing it, and there is no excess between them, they will be equal to one another. (Eighth) 
  • · Every whole is greater than the part. (Ninth)
