"This book examines truth and error, or the science of intellection. In the following chapters an attempt will be made to show that we know much about matter, and although we do not know all, all we know is about matter in its essentials of number, space, motion, time and judgment, or that we know of matter in its four essentials and of mind as consciousness exhibited in judgment and concepts, but always this mind is associated with matter. In doing this we shall endeavor to discriminate between the certitudes and fallacies current in human opinion."--(PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved)
