All we know and all we can state with confidence is, that a mental affection is immediately subsequent to an affection or change which is physical” (80). That is, a mental response is constantly conjoined to a physical sensation, even if that response does not immediately identify the stimulus. The problem is that Upham must explain how a mental response is immediately knit to a sensation – since it appears that mediation (habit and interpretation) intrudes all the time. Following certain strands in Locke and Stewart, he compares the sensation-perception dyad to the sign-signified dyad because the sign rigidly entails its signified.

104–5) In the first paragraph, Upham is arguing that, in the same way that “letters” don’t resemble “thought,” no “subject” of “sense” can “furnish the least positive disclosure . . ” That is, a sensation of “sharp” is just that; it doesn’t mean anything in itself. In the second paragraph, Upham says that the arbitrary relationship of the sign-signified dyad “without any other grounds of . . knowledge than mere institution and appointment” doesn’t prevent our immediately attributing meaning to the word.

What, then, is the relation between the sensation and the outward object, between the perception and the thing perceived? Evidently that of the sign and the thing signified. And as in a multitude of cases, the sign may give a knowledge of its object, without any other grounds of such knowledge than mere institution or appointment, so it is in this. The mind, maintaining its appropriate action, and utterly rejecting the intervention of all images and visible representations, except what are outward and material, and totally distinct from itself both in place and nature, is, notwithstanding, susceptible of the knowledge of things exterior, and can form an acquaintance with the universe of matter.
