- n. In logic, a highest notion, especially one derived from the logical analysis of the forms of proposition. The word was introduced by Aristotle, who applies it to his ten predicaments, things said, or summa genera, viz., substance, quantity, quality, relation, action, passion, where, when, posture or relative position of parts, habit or state. These are derived from such an analysis of the proposition as could be made before the developed study of grammar. The categories or highest intellectual concepts of Kant are: categories of quantity — unity, plurality, totality;categories of quality —reality, negation, limit between these; categories of relation— substance and accident, cause and effect, action and reaction; categories of modality —possibility, impossibility, actuality, non-actuality, necessity, non-necessity. Modern formal logic furnishes this list: qualities, or singular characters; simple relations, or dual characters; complex relations, or plural characters. Many lists of categories have been given not founded on formal logic.
