Excerpt: ... RATIONALE OF PUNISHMENT. BOOK III. OF PRIVATIVE PUNISHMENTS, OR FORFEITURES. CHAPTER I, PUNISHMENT ANALYZED. We now come to the last of the two grand divisions of Punishments--Privative Punishments, or Forfeitures. The word forfeiture is never used but with reference to some possession.* * As all our ideas are derived ultimately from the senses, almost all the names we have for intellectual ideas, seem to be derived ultimately from the names of such objects as afford sensible ideas: that is, of objects that belong to one or other of the three classes of real entities.

Possessions are either substantial or ideal-- substantial when it is the object of a real entity (as a house, a field) ideal, when it is the object of a fictitious entity (as an office, a dignity, a right.)
