I. Wherein is the Criterion for the Apprehension of the Soul.

All things that exist are either known by sense442442    αἰσθήσει. or apprehended by thought.443443    νοήσει. And what falls under sense has its adequate demonstration in sense itself; for at once, with the application, it creates in us the impression444444    φαντασίαν. of what underlies it. But what is apprehended by thought is known not by itself, but by its operations.445445    ἐνεργειῶν. The soul, consequently, being unknown by itself, shall be known property by its effects.
