Conclusion.       §11. Having laid down these Premises concerning Relation in
general, I shall now proceed to shew, in some instances, how all the
Ideas we have of Relation, are made up, as the others are, only of
simple Ideas; and that they all, how refined, or remote from Sense
— 324 —
soever they seem, terminate at last in simple Ideas. I shall begin
with the most comprehensive Relation, wherein all things that do,
or can exist, are concerned, and that is the Relation of Cause and
Effect. The Idea whereof, how derived from the two Fountains of all
our Knowledge, Sensation and Reflection, I shall in the next place
consider.
