Example text

In this story, Byrom is delighted at Hartley's thinness, for it vindicates the vegetable diet that both men follow; it indicates that Hartley is resisting his hunger for fat geese and ale, roast beef and claret.

He limited himself to what Hartley said about the association of ideas (as distinct quanta of consciousness) and declined to discuss what Hartley had to say about physiology, about the structures of the psyche, or about a person's experience of the presence of the divine.  In the language of the times, metaphysics is independent of physiology. " Mackintosh emphasizes that the "error" of doing so "is deeper and more fundamental than any other; since it overlooks the primordial and perpetual distinction between the being which thinks and the thing which is thought of;—not to be lost sight of even for a twinkling, without involving all nature in darkness and confusion" (245).

And they say nothing about the transformations a person may experience, as the reciprocal dynamic of association and counterassociation leads to the transcendence of the self.  Let us renew our acquaintance with David Hartley.  Few people in the coffeehouse could have told you the younger man's name.  He lived at St.  " has the character of a reminder.  Or did it pain him, so that he struggled to conceal his disturbance?  6 In this story, Hartley adheres to Cheyne's regimen of a "vegetable diet" and is similarly transformed.
