A Short History of Philosophy





Indefinite. That of which we know no bounds is called indefinite, for which we should not substitute the word infinite, which denotes that which has and can have none.


Indefinite is sometimes used in logic to denote terms which have no sign of logical quantity universal or particular attached to them, as Londoners, Frenchmen, and the like, as distinguished from such as have, all Londoners, some Londoners, &c. Since Sir W. Hamilton's writings, however, this use of the word is likely to die off. With far more felicity he applies it to the particular term some, of which the precise extent is not given, and substitutes for it in the other case the title indesignate.
