|Holism: Holism is the assumption that the elements or the subject domain of a theory are accessible only with simultaneous availability of all elements or objects of this domain. It is also assumed that a change to an element does not exclude changes to all other elements at least. The statement "everything is connected with everything" is however a wrong characterization of the holism, since it is logically erroneous.|
Books on Amazon:
Empiricism (atomic sentence) leads to the "totalism": Verfication sentence by sentence is not possible - no border between definition and experience. - Holism: not sentence by sentence.
Even the difference between what is true by definition, and what is true by correspondence with the experience itself is not easy to determine by any investigation sentence-by-sentence .
