A System of Logic

John Stuart Mill

Book 1, Chapter 3, Footnote #02
Hamilton not consistent on this doctrine

It is to be regretted that Sir William Hamilton, though he often strenuously insists on this doctrine, and though, in the passage quoted, he states it with a comprehensiveness and force which leave nothing to be desired, did not consistently adhere to his own doctrine, but maintained along with it opinions with which it is utterly irreconcilable. See the third and other chapters of An Examination of Sir William Hamilton'a Philosophy.
