  1. Categories

    The Categories is a text from Aristotle's Organon that enumerates all the possible kinds of things that can be the subject or the predicate of a proposition. They are "perhaps the single most heavily discussed of all Aristotelian notions". The work is brief enough to be divided, not into books as is usual with Aristotle's works, but into fifteen chapters. The Categories places every object of human apprehension under one of ten categories. Aristotle intended them to enumerate everything that can be expressed without composition or structure, thus anything that can be either the subject or the predicate of a proposition.

The Nuttall Encyclopedia

  1. Categories

    are either classes under which all our Notions of things may be grouped, or classes under which all our Thoughts of things may be grouped; the former called Logical, we owe to Aristotle, and the latter called Metaphysical, we owe to Kant. The Logical, so derived, that group our notions, are ten in number: Substance or Being, Quantity, Quality, Relation, Place, Time, Position, Possession, Action, Passion. The Metaphysical, so derived, that group our thoughts, are twelve in number: (1) as regards quantity, Totality, Plurality, Unity; (2) as regards quality, Reality, Negation, Limitation; (3) as regards relation, Substance, Accident, Cause and Effect, Action and Reaction; (4) as regards modality, Possibility and Impossibility, Existence and Nonexistence, Necessity and Contingency. John Stuart Mill resolves the categories into five, Existence, Co-existence, Succession, Causation, and Resemblance.

  4. Elizabeth Sunday:

    Life is a horizon, Made up of the life here and there, But for the life here, From the day you came into this world, And unto the day you leave this world, Is made up of a journey, A race to run till you get to the finish line. Don't expect much from life, Because you might not like what it gives you, Life doesn't give you what you deserve, But you give unto life what you ought to deserve, Backup by hard work and will. Life is a rumble ball, Full of ups and downs, Difficulties and trials, It is never a bed of roses, Or a place full of only enjoyment. Life is a battle field, A survival of the fittest, Only those who have hope and courage, Is accessible in winning in this life. It is made up of different categories, The rich, the poor, The weak, the strong, The death, the living, The good and the evil. Now is left for every man out there, Including those reading this quote now, To answer this question, Which category do I belong to? Or want to belong to? Life is self-made, Everything about it is personal, A Personal Race.

  5. Anne McTiernan:

    Equally problematic was that they classified men and women the same in relation to categories of alcohol use. Women metabolize alcohol differently than men, so a' light' drinker for men may be more of a' moderate' drinker for women, the study strengths included the large sample size, including both women and men, and a lifetime history of alcohol use.
