The Concept of Concept


‘Thought’ proffered Immanuel Kant ‘ is cognition by means of conception’.

Cognition is a concept. A Concept is that which is conceptually differentiable. But ‘conceptually differentiable’ is itself a concept.

A ‘concept’ says the Dictionary, is a ‘a general notion or idea’. But a ‘general notion’ and an ‘idea’ are both very much concepts.

A concept has a public understanding while conception is just a private view. Yet concept is for you a conception and conception becomes a concept in the dictionary, unchanged regardless of who looks at it.

Concept; Conception; Concept of Conception; Conception of Concept. All Concepts; or are they Conceptions?
