James: Experience

„Our experience meanwhile is all shot through with regularities. One bit of it can warn us to get ready for another bit, can ‚intend‘ or be ’significant of‘ that remoter object. The object’s advent is the significance’s verification. Truth, in these cases, meaning nothing but eventual verification, is manifestly incompatible with waywardness on our part.“ (p. 172) #James #experience
