Before we can discuss the answer to this question, we must first be clear as to what our question means. But this position cannot be called materialistic, if, as seems to be the case, physics does not assume the existence of matter. Make your weaknesses your strengths. And just because we are not misled by familiarity we find it easier to be cautious in interpreting behaviour when we are dealing with phenomena remote from those of our own minds: Moreover, introspection, as psychoanalysis has demonstrated, is extraordinarily fallible even in cases where we feel a high degree of certainty.

This follows from what was said in Lecture VII. This is a place where you visualize your dream and see yourself performing at your very best. A hungry animal is restless until it finds food; then it becomes quiescent. James "Psychology," ii, maintains that children walk by instinct, and that the awkwardness of their first attempts is only due to the fact that the instinct has not yet ripened. Mind is a matter of degree, chiefly exemplified in number and complexity of habits. Consistency is what separates good athletes from great ones.

We see in animals, and analysis of mind. book a lesser extent in plants, behaviour more or less similar to that which, in us, is prompted by desires and beliefs, and we find that, as we descend in the scale of evolution, behaviour becomes simpler, more easily reducible to rule, more scientifically analysable and predictable. All that he does is determined--or so it seems--by the end he has in view, by what lies in front of him, rather than by what lies behind. In this way its logical status differs from that of the theories which are proved by its means. This is such a common phenomenon that any theory of desire which fails to account for it must be wrong.

The literature of instinct is vast, and illustrations might be multiplied indefinitely. The view we are considering regards everything that can be said about any one object as relative in the same sort of way as "so-and-so is a married man.

Careful observers of animals, being anxious to avoid precarious inferences, have gradually discovered more and more how to give an account of the actions of animals without assuming what we call "consciousness.

This is a dreary view, and they there fore seek ways of escaping from it. Both mind and matter seem to be composite, and the stuff of which they are compounded lies in a sense between the two, in a sense above them both, like a common ancestor.
