Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

Interpretation: A) Making statements about other statements, whereby new vocabulary may be introduced. If no new vocabulary is introduced, new information can be obtained by changing the syntactic grouping.
B) In logic, interpretation is the insertion of values (objects) instead of the constants or free variables.

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.

> Objet ambigu/artifact/interpretation/Game of Life/Conway/Dennett: Question: are the "Eater", "Glider", etc. designed objects or natural formations? The easiest Glider arises obviously from the rules, no one had to make it.
Fodor IV 137
Interpretation theory/Dennett/Fodor/Lepore: (Brentano: Thesis: the intentional cannot be traced back to the physical).
Dennett: i.e. Ontologically, there are no such things as belief, desires, intentional phenomena!
Interpretation: they are, however, indispensable as elements of interpretation (epistemic). (s). That is, that intentionality (or its attribution) is accessible only by interpretation (of behavior?). ("Interpretivism", "interpretativism").
IV 138
Intentional attribution/Dennett: intentional attribution is always wrong. Because there is no intentionality which is ontological (merely as epistemically useful concepts), Vs intentional realism.

Principle of Charity/Fodor/Lepore: must be intrinsically holistic, which is also accepted by Dennett.

Interpretation theory:/Fodor/Lepore: according to Dennett, there are two schools:

1. Definition Projectivism/Dennett: one ascribes to the other the internal states that one would have oneself in the appropriate circumstances.
2. Definition Normativism/Dennett: one ascribes to the other internal states which he should have in the circumstances.
IV 139
There are, of course, close relations between normativism and holism.
