A Short History of Philosophy





ADEQUATE (adœquo, to equal), sufficient, applied to our cognitions. Our knowledge of an object is adequate or complete when it extends to all the properties of that object.


Spinoza says:—"By an adequate idea, I understand an idea which, considered in itself, without relation to the object, possesses all the properties and intrinsic characters of a true idea" (Ethics,-pt. II. defin. 4). He explains:—"I say intrinsic, in order to exclude that work which is extrinsic, namely, the agreement between the idea and its object (ideato)" (Ethics, pt. II. defin. 4). According to prop. 35, "Falsehood consists in the absence of the cognition which inadequate or imperfect and confused ideas involve."
