CHAPTER I THE INTENSITY OF PSYCHIC STATES Quantitative differences applicable to magnitudes but not to intensities Attempt to estimate intensities by objective causes or atomic movements Different kinds of intensities "Deep-seated psychic states : desire, hope, joy and sorrow" "Aesthetic feelings: grace, beauty, music, poetry, art" "Moral feelings, pity" "Conscious states involving physical symptoms: muscular effort, attention and muscular tension" "Violent emotions: rage, fear" "Affective sensations: pleasure and pain, disgust" "Representative sensations: and external causes, sensation of sound, intensity, pitch and muscular effort, sensations of heat and cold, sensations of pressure and weight, sensation of light, photometric experiments" Delb/uf's experiments "Psychophysics: Weber and Fechner, Delb/uf, the mistake of regarding sensations as magnitudes" "Intensity in (I) representative, (2) affective states, intensity and multiplicity" CHAPTER II THE MULTIPLICITY OF CONSCIOUS STATES THE IDEA OF DURATION "Number and its units, number and accompanying intuition of space" "Two kinds of multiplicity of material objects and conscious states, impenetrability of matter, homogeneous time and pure duration" "Space and its contents, empirical theories of space, intuition of empty homogeneous medium peculiar to man, time as homogenous medium peculiar to man, time as homogeneous medium reducible to space" "Duration, succession and space, pure duration" Is duration measurable? Is motion measurable? Paradox of the Eleatics Duration and simultaneity Velocity and simultaneity "Space alone homogenous, duration and succession belong to conscious mind" "Two kinds of multiplicity, qualitative and quantitative, superficial psychic states invested with discontinuity of their external causes, these eliminated, real duration is felt as a quality" ############################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################### Problems soluble only by recourse to the concrete and living self CHAPTER III THE ORANIZATION OF CONSCIOUS STATES FREE WILL Dynamism and mechanism Two kinds of determinism ############################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################### "Psychological determinism: implies associationist conception of mind, this involves defective conception of self" The free act: freedom as expressing the fundamental self "Real duration and contingency: could our act have been different ?, geometrical representation of process of coming to a decision, the fallacies to which it leads determinists and libertarians" ############################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################### ############################################################################################################################################################################################################################################################### Freedom real but indefinalbe CONCLUSION States of self perceived through forms borrowed from external world Intensity as quality Duration as qualitative multiplicity No duration in the external world Extensity and duration must be separated Only the fundamental self free "Kant's mistaken idea of time as homogeneous, hence he put the self which is free outside both space and time" "Duration is heterogeneous, relation of psychic state to act is unique, and act is free" INDEX
