‘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?
