    • n conceptualism The psychological doctrine that the meaning of a general class-name, as horse, red, etc., can be fully represented in thought or be actually present to consciousness: opposed both to realism and to nominalism. It is mainly an English doctrine, and Locke is the most celebrated advocate of the opinion. The term is also applied to some of the opinions concerning universals held in the middle ages, under the impression that the questions then at issue were the same as that discussed by the English philosophers.
