Excerpt from The Monist, Vol. 24: A Quarterly Magazine Devoted to the Philosophy of Science
HE purpose of what follows is to advocate a certain analysis of the simplest and most pervading aspect of experience, namely what I call acquaintance. It will be maintained that acquai... ntance is a dual relation between a subject and an object which need not have any com munity of nature. The subject is mental, the object is not known to be mental except in introspection. The object may be in the present, in the past, or not in time at all; it may be a sensible particular, or a universal, or an abstract logical fact. All cognitive relations - attention, sensation, memory, imagination, believing, disbelieving, etc - pre suppose acquaintance.
