Excerpt from The Concept of Control

IN the various attempts to render an adequate description of the world of experience as presented in the history of thought, we find recurring such conceptions as purpose, teleology, final cause, design, to denote certain features which have been deemed indispensable to an exhaustive interpretation of reality. Upon reflection it appears that these categories and their like constitute so many variants of the wider concept of control; and as such express specific ways in which control has been apprehended. That is, these different predi cates are diverse methods of explaining control, of making explicit elements thought to be involved in its postulation.
