Hence he describes such apprehension as " implicit," and in so far as the implicit apprehension determines the order of such emergence he describes it as " schematic." A good example of this process is the use of formulae in calculations; ordinarily the formula is used without question; if attention is fixed upon it, the steps by which it is shown to be universally applicable emerge and the " schema " is complete in detail. With this result may be compared Kant's theory of apprehension as a synthetic act (the " synthesis of apprehension ") by which the sensory elements of a perception are subjected to the formal conditions of time and space. See G. F. Stout, Analytic Psychology (London, 1896) ; F. Brentano, Psychologie (bk. ii. ch. vii.), and Vom Ursprung sittlicher Erkenntnis; B. Titchener, Outlines of Psychology (New York, 1902), and text-books of psychology. Also PSYCHOLOGY.
