Association I 13
Association/Hume: is a natural law. - Ideas: the effect of the association of ideas has three forms:
1. General idea(similarity)
2. Procedure/regularity (through idea of "substance" or "mode")
3. Relation: an idea draws another to itself - thereby ideas do not acquire new quality.
I 126f
Association/principle/Hume: Problem: 1. Association only explains the form of thought, not the content - 2. A. does not explain the individual contents of the individual - solution: the explanation lies in the circumstances of the perception - also substances, general ideas and modes require the circumstances
I 137f
Associations/KantVsHume/Deleuze: the "Law of Reproduction" (frequent consecutive ideas set a connection) assumes that the phenomena actually follow such a rule - (Kant pro). - There must be a reason a priori -> synthesis of the imagination - (not of the senses!).
KantVsHume: his dualism (relations are outside of things ) forces him to grasp that as the accordance of subject with nature. - But this cannot be a priori, otherwise it would remain unnoticed.
I 154
Association/Hume: cannot Select - if the mind determined only by principles, there would be no morality.
