In order to grasp the operational character of rational thought, we must deal with these systems as they are, and, if ordinary logical patterns conceal their existence, then we must construct a logic of wholes.

Quite apart from the fact that its definition relies on other concepts, a “class” could not exist by itself. As an instrument of real thought, disregarding its logical definition, it is only a “structured”, not a “structuring”, element, or at least it is already structured only in so far as it structures; it has no reality apart from all the entities to which it is opposed or which it includes (or in which it is included).
