Scholastic Model and the Associationist Viewpoints of Reality
I am still a little confused on the scholastic model of reality as well as the associationist viewpoints of reality.
Briefly, what is your viewpoint of this statement below and could you briefly explain or summarize this statement. Is there any truth to this statement?
The scholastic model of reality proposes that sensory experience was transformed by the mind into an internal object (representation) or the basic commonsense of the human mind which forms the basis of our own thoughts, ideas, desires, beliefs, and the like. With this, we can combine the viewpoint of association, as this perspective of reality suggests, knowledge is obtained through the building of multiple ideas, each being formed by the other.
