Expressions which are in no way composite signify substance, quantity,
quality, relation, place, time, position, state, action, or affection.
To sketch my meaning roughly, examples of substance are 'man' or 'the
horse', of quantity, such terms as 'two cubits long' or 'three cubits
long', of quality, such attributes as 'white', 'grammatical'. 'Double',
'half', 'greater', fall under the category of relation; 'in a the
market place', 'in the Lyceum', under that of place; 'yesterday',

Substance, in the truest and primary and most definite sense of the
word, is that which is neither predicable of a subject nor present

secondary sense those things are called substances within which, as
species, the primary substances are included; also those which, as
genera, include the species. For instance, the individual man is included
in the species 'man', and the genus to which the species belongs is
'animal'; these, therefore-that is to say, the species 'man' and the

The Truth About Atheism

It seems to me, in America, we seem to have names for everything. If you can describe an idea, and another person can understand what you are talking about, then it is time to give that idea a name.

other parts: others have within them no such relation of part to part.
