The Brute Within

This chapter discusses Aristotle’s version of the association of ideas. It exposes a rich conception of sense, or the perceptual system, which can account not only for acts of sense-perception, but also for associating one thing with another, remembering things, and being reminded by something of something else. So conceived of, the perceptual system can also account for the occurrence of action-guiding representations that are indeterminately complex, and at the same time relevant and suitable to the perceiving subject’s current circumstances.

Keywords:   Aristotle, association, sense, perception, memory
