Mind/Hume: has no consistency himself - only psychology of affections, the affect possible - mind must be affected.
Mind/Hume: is identical with imagination and idea - imagination. no fortune, but collection without uniformity.
Mind/Hume: remains always passive - mind is not determinative, but it is determined - act of the mind is activated, not active.
Mind/Hume: is passive, empty, filled with impressions (not ideas) - ordered by principles: association, contiguity, causality - (inner) impression = self-awareness, that creates the subject - ideas are atomistic.
Mind/Hume: new: in so far as the principles of morality and emotions act upon him, he ceases to be imagination and is fixed as a part of human nature - (complex instead of simple effect, that is the distinction /Culture/Nature).
animal: only knows simple effects - no exceeding rules.
Mind/Hume: is identical with the idea - the mind is not subject - it does not need a subject - also it does not represent nature - perceptions are the only objects - every idea can disappear.
The mind therefore quantitative, not qualitative - invariant. the "smallest idea": E.g. I have an idea of the part of a grain of sand, but the images of it are all the same - Definition "moment of the mind": citation of a smallest idea, but which is sensual.
mind transforms to the subject by the two principles of affect and association._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
