MENTAL MECHANICS

first proposed by British philosopher James Mill (1773 - 1836) which implies that all complex ideas are simply accumulations of a large amount of smaller ideas which make up the complex idea.

MENTAL MECHANICS: "One of the many theories which looks at the human experience is the concept of mental mechanics which explains complex in-depth ideas as accumulations of smaller ideas."
