PART VII
ON THE MECHANISM OF TIME-BINDING
There should be no theoretical objection to the hypothesis of the formation of new physiological paths and new connections within the cerebral hemispheres. (394)                                                                              I. p. pavlov
It seems desirable in this place to clearly emphasize the fact that in the use of psychoanalysis we are dealing solely with a method for gaining data. One occasionally hears the statement that psychoanalysis is nonsense. A method, or a tool, is not nonsense. (241)                            smith ELY jelliffe
It is by means of internal inhibition that the signalizing activity of the hemispheres is constantly corrected and perfected. (394)              i. p. pavlov
We are dealing here with types of associative reaction peculiar to the cortical system, correctly opposed to the unqualified affective reactivity of the thalamus and usefully analysed by Head. (4ii)               henri pieron
This example and other observations suggest that a gradual development of internal inhibition in the cortex should be used for re-establishment of the balance of normal conditions in cases of an unbalanced nervous system.
(394)                                                                                                    i. p. PAVLOV
A self-satisfied rationalism is in effect a form of anti-rationalism. It means an arbitrary halt at a particular set of abstractions. (575)
A. N. WHITEHEAD
. . . the 'fallacy of misplaced concreteness' . . . consists in neglecting the degree of abstraction involved when an actual entity is considered merely so far as it exemplifies certain categories of thought. (578)
A. N. WHITEHEAD
In the Garden of Eden Adam saw the animals before he named them: in the traditional system, children named the animals before they saw
them. (S7S)                                                                                 A. N. WHITEHEAD
The negative judgment is the peak of mentality. (578) a. n. whitehead
