|Limits, philosophy: here we are concerned with the classification of knowledge domains or the identification of possibilities for thought. We need to determine what belongs to a domain and what does not. Problems arise wherever something is to be described beyond an area by the means of this area itself ('impracticability', 'unthinkability','inconceivability'), as well as where an area is solely covered by means originating from this area itself ( Circularity)._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments. |

Radical Interpretation/RI/Holism/Davidson: E.g. "There’s a whale" is not independently interpretable from "There is amammal" - also there is nowhere a boundary where one puts an end - therefore there is no distinction simple/Composed (complex).
Therefore, the RI can not go step by step - Dummett: a class of sentences should contain the word in question - DavdisonVsDummett: This class expands automatically to the entire language - DavidsonVsDummett: we need to identify a corpus of sentences about situations._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
