Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

 
Sense, philosophy: sense is a property of statements which makes the determination of the truth value (true or false) possible, although not guaranteed. Even false statements make sense; otherwise their falsehood could not be established. What is meaningless, therefore, is what cannot be negated. Statements about the future allow an assessment of probabilities if they are sensible without having a truth value. Wishes and commands are sensible and understandable if they can be reformulated into negative statements. See also understanding, negation, truth values, verification, determination, indeterminacy, probability, Fregean sense.

Sense/Luhmann/GLU: allows the selective production of all social and psychological forms - the form of sense is the distinction "real"/"possible". - Sense is the simultaneous presentation of news and possible - sense determines connectivity to additional communication - ((s) Elsewhere: is the dimension that is presented in the negation.) - Material dimension: "this"/"other" - social dimension: "ego"/"old" - time dimension: past/future.

---
II 35

---
II 44

---

Sense/Luhmann/Reese-Schäfer: preverbal, language foundational category.
Sense/HabermasVsLuhmann: principle linguistical - inconceivable without intersubjective validity. LuhmannVsHabermas: studies on marriage conflicts show that these cannot be solved with everyday language, because the everyday language holds both positive and negative expressions.

AU Cass 10
Sense/Sociology/Luhmann: Problem: if each individual produces sense, is there then a sphere of intersubjectivity? - Solution: we have to apply the sense category on two different system categories:
1. Mental systems, awareness systems that experience meaningfully. -
2. Communication systems that reproduce sense in that it is used in communication. Subject: lost. - The subject is not a carrier of meaning. - Sense gets formal. - Solution: extraction through the distinction between medium and form - that means, independent of a particular system.

AU Cass 10
Sense/Luhmann sense could be a constant invitation to a specific shape formation, which then is always characterized by the fact that they are formed in the medium by sense - but these forms do not represent sense as a category at all - The word "sense" is namely not the only thing what makes sense.
---
AU Cas 10
Sense/Luhmann: a) in the system of consciousness - E.g. references to other options: I have the key in the pocket to unlock the door later - but sense is also the location of that reference in everything we consider as an object - b) in the communication system : to information also belongs the failure area: what surprises me? - All items have only sense in the context of other options.
---
AU Cass 10
Sense is itself a medium - also negation takes place internally. - But sense itself is not negated. - We cannot get out. - A world in which only beetles exist would be one in which no more sense is processed - but we can imagine it only meaningfully. - We imagine the rest as rest - ( "as it would be for the human"). - ((S)> nail, bat) - Animal/Luhmann: it is impossible to distinguish whether there is sense for animals. - We depend on the assumption of sense. - No distinction of meaning such as "factual"/"temporal"/"social" are possible.
---
AU Cas 10
Sense/Luhmann: no sense needing system can be completely transparent to itself. - That, what we are as a result of a long chain of operations, which structures we have, we cannot reduce this to a formula. - But instead we can imagine who we are, or we can describe it. - We also encounter quickly meaningless - that means, something that does not fit into this description.
