|Models, philosophy, logic: A model is obtained when a logical formula provides true statements by inserting objects instead of the free variables. One problem is the exclusion of unintended models. See also model theory._____________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. |
Model: always works in connection with a commentary.
Model of sensations: requires internal objects.
Theory of sensations does not speak of inner objects.
Sellars: the basic assumptions of a theory are usually not formed by an uninterpreted calculus, but by a model (Definition model: the description of a domain of known objects which behave in the usual way).
A model is characterized primarily by the fact that gets commentary alongside, which restricts or limits the analogies. The descriptions of the basic behaviors correspond to the postulates of the logistic image of theorizing._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
