What is…

What is the thing in us that we seal with a word?

Everyone, and by this I mean everyone– from the crudest materialist to the most spiritualized Platonist, from Marxists to disciples of Berkeley- agree that knowledge involves “having something in mind”. We all agree that when we know- by reason or imagination- certain things are “in” us. We are left to explain what this thing is within us, and how is it in us (there it is again, that phrase “what this thing is…” ousia).
