|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/truth/theory/Putnam: Thesis: the mind reflects not merely a world that only permits one true theory - mind and world together create mind and world - truth is highly dependent on our values.
Reality/world/life/Putnam: the so-called manifest image of the world demands of us that we are formed philosophically - philosophy must always re-acquire its authority - it is a human science, not natural science._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
