Coleridge has called the Logos 'the communicative intelligence'. Communication of the ideal knowledge is one of his basic assumptions. Man in his system is not a solitary creature seeking to know in an indifferent universe. Coleridge's most pressing concern is to affirm the superiority of the human mode of the communicative intelligence, or of the unconscious, over the natural mode. The theories advanced in Coleridge's essays on method about the way in which the communicative intelligence can operate fall into the category he has called 'human'. The human mode of the communicative intelligence may be thought of as a series of links which together connect God and man, or absolute knowledge with mortal attempts to construct a philosophy. The natural mode is subsidiary but not non-existent in Coleridge's account of the communicative intelligence. He dwells on the limitations because he thinks that they are being forgotten by his contemporaries.
