Synopsis:
  • All knowledge is acquired through experience
  • But sense-experience does not determine the inner life: it is inner life that determines sense-experience
  • Will is always in relation to action
  • To act is to know, and viceversa
  • Perception is not passive, but active: perception is action
  • Psychology cannot be reduced to physiology because they study fundamentally different phenomena
  • They are equivalent descriptions of the same event
