Cognition I 42
Def cognitive priority: a concept is not conceivable without the other, but not the same as definitional priority - eg red* (field of view) without red is possible, but being red can be defined only by red* (field of view) -> Kaplan: character : is the same for red and reduv - that is what is primarily of red* - cognitive and definitional priority must not coincide - it may be that a concept has definitional priority over a second concept, but the second has cognitive priority over the first.
