Categorical Resolution
1905 [c.] | Pragmatism, Prag [R] | CP 5.517 n.

By a categorical resolution I mean a representation to oneself that one will behave in a certain general way in a certain expected contingency, this representation being received with satisfaction, being rehearsed with pleasure, and perhaps exciting a special effort to learn it as a lesson. The purpose toward the accomplishment of which the action tends is taken for granted.
