How apprehension is perceived.
Whitehead quipped about the presence of apprehensiveness as one questions life and in so doing referred to our poor manner of speech which drives our will to discover a newer form of verbal expression. This tends to communicate that man is generally unsure of how he expresses himself and that awkwardness associated to being apprehensive tends to be a good driving force to improving ones communicability. Whitehead so-authored “Principia Mathimatica” with Russell that laid the foundation of modern mathematics. One may so that the logic of expressing mathematical relations has something to do with being able to communicate well since the ability to clearly demonstrate these mathematical principles requires confidence and decisiveness, the opposite of apprehension.
Apprehension can be associated to the comparison of two objects in terms of the aesthetics. Which one would be more pleasing to the eye? Deciding on which object is more beautiful in a room could involve apprehension perhaps because one may be doubtful of his appreciation of the aesthetic, reticent to dismiss a lesser form of beauty. This brings to mind that beauty is in the eye of the beholder who when regarding an object for its pleasant appeal, relates to it. The object “says something to him. This does not involve apprehension as when a comparison is made between tow objects, suggested Gerard Hopkins, when he stated: “Beauty is relation and the apprehension of it, a comparison”.
