  • By ejection.
  • In philosophy, as an eject.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Just as a thinking insect would derive a better, or more true, conception of human personality by considering it ejectively than by considering it objectively (or by considering the mind-processes as distinguished from the brain-processes), so, if there is a form of mind immeasurably superior to our own, we may probably gain a more faithful -- howsoever still inadequate -- conception of it by contemplating its operations ejectively than by doing so objectively.

  • Hence, the only reason why there now appears to be so great an antithesis between these two principles, is because the volition which is going on outside of my own consciousness can only be known to me objectively, -- or at most ejectively, -- on which account the principle of causality appears to me phenomenally as the most ultimate, or most unanalyzable, principle in the phenomenal universe.
