Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Search  
 
Logical constants: logical constants are also called logical particles or connectives, they are e.g. “and”; “or”; “if”; “then”; “not”. The expression constant is used, because the meaning of the logical links cannot change also in the translation into other languages, but always remains. For example, if one was to try to replace "and" with "or" in the case of a translation, mistakes would arise which could be determined, even if the vocabulary of the foreign language is not entirely known.

Translation/logic/logical constants/meaning/RI/Gavagai/Quine: E.g. conjunction: if someone agrees with a composite sentence, but not with one of its constituents, then that is a reason not to consider the composite sentence as a conjunction - "our translation forces our logic on him" - we integrate our logic into the translation rules - circumstances: also integrated into translation rules - e.g. if someone does not agree with a sentence while it is raining, we do not translate it with "it is raining" - ((s) f.o.th- not-not/double negation/ weaker than position) - "Radical interpretation: only circumstances and consistent meaning of logical constants ((s) or logical truths -" Principle: E.g. receiving the evident: evident sentences should proceed with the translation to real and possibly evident sentences ((s) due to the split circumstances).

Adjunction/negation/logical operators/Quine: are immanent, not transcendent, because with a different logic, we cannot maintain their meanings.
