Life, Mind and Knowledge or The Circuit of Sentient Existence

£9.99

Product description

A living organism is a closed circuit. The sentient current starts in the battery of living substance; its "outer circuit" is consciousness, or mind, which, by functioning as knowledge, forms a "conductor" that close or completes the circuit of sentient and corporreal existence. In other words, minds gets its whole and sole meaning from the living "battery" - the body - whence it emerges, by functioning as knowledge to keep it "in charge". And the object of the following pages is to indicate very briefly the nature of the "plugs" - the elements of knowledge - that close the circuit.

In very good condition. A small amount of shelfwear to the spine and edges of the hardcover. The pages within are clean, crisp and in very good condition, with a tight binding. Overall a great copy.
