Single Idea 15588

[catalogued under 18. Thought / C. Content / 1. Content]

Full Idea

There is no determining the full content of what someone thinks or believes from the individual things that he thinks or believes; we must also look at the threads that tie the contents of these thoughts or beliefs together.

Gist of Idea

You cannot determine the full content from a thought's intrinsic character, as relations are involved
