|Order, philosophy: order is the division of a subject area by distinctions or the highlighting of certain differences as opposed to other differences. The resulting order can be one-dimensional or multi-dimensional, i.e. linear or spatial. Examples are family trees, lexicons, lists, alphabets. It may be that only an order makes certain characteristics visible, e.g. contour lines. Ordering spaces may be more than three-dimensional, e.g. in the attribution of temperatures to color-determined objects. See also conceptual space, hierarchies, distinctness, indistinguishability, stratification, identification, individuation, specification.|

Order / Hume: to allow a system it is not enough to associate the ideas, the perceptions need to be recognized as separate from the mind first - i.e. the principles of association are not sufficient
Unit / order / principles / Hume: in order to display the unity of the subject- which breaks down into as many tracks as there are principles- these principles must be strictly hierarchical, non-equivalent or having the same effect - supreme principle: emotion.
