## Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments | |||

Predicativeness, redicativity, philosophy: concepts are predicative that do not come from the totality to which they refer. They can therefore be used without the danger of circularity. See also circularity, impredicativity, Poincaré._____________ 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. | |||

I 96 Predicative functions: f (x) - non-predicative: f(x^): Function as opposed to its values! - Predicative(s): function that is one step higher than its argument. --- I 109 Class/predicative/totality/Principia Mathematica/Russell: each class can be defined by a predictive function - hence the totality of classes, of which one can sensibly say that a given term belongs to them or not, a legitimate entirety, although the entirety of functions, of which one can say that a given term fulfils them or not, is not a legitimate entirety. --- I 116 Definition predicative function/Principia Mathematica/Russell: notation: j ! (x,y) (predicative function of x and y.) - Def non-predicative/impredicative function/Principia Mathematica/Russell: function as opposed to its values: notation: j ! (x^, y^). --- E. Picardi Alfred North Whitehead/Bertrand Russell: Principia Mathematica aus "Hauptwerke der Philosophie 20. Jahrhundert" , Eva Picardi u.a.
