or predicable meaning. And this existence, or reality-meaning, may be again entertained in two ways: it may be specifically asserted in a judgment of existence, or taken for granted as something capable of such assertion; or it may be set up hypo- thetically and schematically. These two attitudes are for the logical mode what the 'presumption' and the 'assumption' are for the pre-logical." Urban writes, corroborating Baldwin, as follows: "Assumption as a cognitive attitude has two meanings. According to its first meaning it is an acceptance, a taking as existent of an object when there is an underlying sense of the possibility of its being non-existent. In this sense, it is a half-way stage between the primitive presumption of reality, and the existential judgment. In this sense also it is a secondary movement or act of cognition, within a developing sphere of reality, bounded by the primitive presumption of reality, and the existential judgment, affirmative or negative. From the point of view of conation, it is an act determined by the momentum of the subjective disposition or interest. In its second meaning, it is not pre-judgmental, but post-judgmental; it presupposed dispositions created by acts of judgment, and is derived from the judgment- attitude." ' Such a distinction within assumption makes it all the more evident that this activity is the moving principle in mental development and in the growth of experience; it is the function of growth in all modes of cognition.
