Passive mind is a mind whose contents are determined by sensory experience. It contains a few mechanistic principles that organize, store, and generalize sensory experiences. Moreover, Passive mind refers to a mind that simply reflects cognitively one's experiences with the physical world. The Empiricists assume a passive mind. Likewise, the British Empiricists and the French Sensationalists tended to postulate such a mind.
