ASSENT (ad sentio).—(1) To think the same—to be of the same mind; (2) intellectual acceptance of a proposition. The term is generally used as implying a measure of faith or belief in the absence of intuition or reasoned proof.


"Assent is that act of the mind by which we accept as true a proposition, a perception, or an idea. It is a necessary part of judgment; for if you take away from judgment affirmation or denial, nothing remains but a simple conception, without logical value, or a proposition which must be examined before it can be admitted" (Dict. des. Sci. Phil.).— V. BELIEF, CONSENT.
