Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

 
Phenomenalism: is the notion that it is the manner of experience of the objects, and not the objects in themselves to which we can refer. In this case, the existence of the corresponding objects is not assumed in principle for all sensory impressions. See also empiricism, perception, sensory perception, sensory impressions.

Phenomenalism/Mill/Putnam: we only talk about our feelings- modern form: connects to the instrumentalism: thesis: all the facts are ultimately instrumental - Bohr: science cannot find out how nature is, but what we can say about the nature. - Ethics/phenomenalism: Thesis: statements about values are emotive, not cognitive. (Non-cognitivism). CarnapVsphenomenalism/CarnapVsHusserl: translations of statements about objects in statements about feelings are actually wrong, a wrong kind of reductionism. - Feelings are private, objects are public, reading of measurements is not an experience.
Phenomenalism/Putnam: Motivation: will clear out the apparent conflict between instrumental science and direct interest in nature.
