|World, philosophy: here we are concerned about what is counted as a world. If the world is conceived as a totality of objects, states, processes and their relations, as well as the totality of actions and thoughts, no statements are possible about the world which are not circular. See also universe, ontology, totality, whole, outer/inner, paradoxes, circularity._____________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. |

World is related to sense as environment is related to system - an open term for all that is opposed to the mind - but not the universe - no wholeness._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
