Simple and mixed Modes.       §5. Of these Modes, there are two sorts, which deserve distinct
consideration. First, There are some which are only variations, or
different combinations of the same simple Idea, without the mixture
of any other, as a dozen, or score; which are nothing but the Ideas
of so many distinct Unites added together, and these I call simple
Modes, as being contained within the bounds of one simple Idea.
Secondly, There are others compounded of simple Ideas of several
kinds, put together to make one complex one; v.g. Beauty, con-
sisting of a certain composition of Colour and Figure, causing
delight in the Beholder; Theft, which being the concealed change of
the possession of any thing, without the consent of the Proprietor,
contains, as is visible, a combination of several Ideas of several kinds;
and these I call mixed Modes.
