He means that its cause is a particular experience in the history of the perceiver. The third type of perception is a higher level of induction, considering the lower level as its objects – as ‘raw material’ – for further generalization. As an example, Spinoza describes our knowledge that the sun must be much larger than it seems. This knowledge is a generalization from everybody’s experience that, when a thing moves further away from us, it looks smaller. He argues that although in this particular example the 49 generalization is justified, if this kind of induction is used without care, it often leads to mistakes.
But, their explanations will vary. Some will quote their teachers who taught them that 6 is to 3 as 4 is to 2, thinking that they learned this by hearsay. Others will rely on the method of calculating the result and explain that the method was learned from experience, based on the second type of perception, and then generalized into an axiom by the third type (induction). But, to a mathematician it is clear that the method is derived from a principle of proportionality which can only be known by intuition.
The higher level of induction – postulating such relationships and ordering them in a logical system – can lead to real knowledge, but only to the extent that the postulated premisses are correct. Since our perception of these premisses is passive this method can lead to error. It follows that the best way to perfect our understanding is to start from premisses whose source is not external to the mind. But these premises can only be known by rational analysis. In other words, the only form of understanding that never leads to error is a logical system which starts from premises known by their essence alone.
