Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

 
Syntax: Syntax is a collective term for systems that regulate the composition of signs into linear combinations (strings), as opposed to the semantics interpreting these strings. Syntax questions concern the permissibility, in short, the existence of combinations, not the resulting being true or false of the interpreted formulas. See also proof theory, existence, morphology, semantics, pragmatics, linguistics.

A machine is defined by effects, it cannot be recreated from cheese. - Computer: is syntactically defined, can be recreated from anything. (cats, mice, cheese). - Syntax always observer-relative. Not intrinsical - but heart is an intrinsical pump - also water is describable as intelligent (lowest resistance).
