BerkeleyVsLocke: no "generalizing forces" - linguistic generalization is no generalization of mind. - Singular names do not have to give rise to the understanding of ideas. - It is not the main purpose of language to evoke ideas - instead: even eliciting of passion discouraging and encouraging of actions, etc.
Breidert I 228ff
