Synopsis:
  • All knowledge is conceptual
  • Knowledge of an experience is not a mental copy of the object, but a relation between concepts
  • The mind performs a "diagnosis of appearance": it interprets experience based on its significance for future experience and action, and this interpretation is based on past success in classifying similar experiences
  • The mind creates a world order that serves its purpose
