# The Commens DictionaryQuote from ‘The Logic of Relations’

Quote:

The general name which applies to a thing by virtue of its being the first correlate of a relation is called a relative. That fact which, being looked upon in a particular way and considered as belonging to one of the objects concerned, becomes a relation is in itself, apart from the ordinary ordering of the objects, called the fundamentum relationis, or relationship.
