Summary: The habits to which there is an innate tendency are called instincts; some of those due to education would, by most persons, be called acts of reason. It appears that habit covers a very large part of life, and that one engaged in studying the objective manifestations of mind is bound at the very outset to define clearly just what its limits are.
