|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. |

|Hintikka I 100
World/happy/unhappy/Tractatus/Wittgenstein/Hintikka: affected by Moore/Bloomsbury Circle: ethics: the moral status of an action is determined by its consequences. - Presentation of "valuable experience". - Hintikka: then the world with such experiences is another than a world without.
Language/world/Wittgenstein: we have the idea that the language would be held within limits by the world - ((s) the world causes that statements are true or false) - But not that the meanings change - Otherwise a new fact could cause that the statement that it represents, should be read, because of new meanings, as if it would not have occurred. - ((s) this shows that truth and meaning must be distinguished.)
World/Wittgenstein: totality of facts, not of things: Description - not a list.
World of the happy/unhappy/Tractatus/Wittgenstein/Flor: I am my world: the way in which the world reveals itself to me, also indicates how I am (> Schulte VI 92) without the facts being different by a whit.
Tractatus/world/Schulte: the world of the Tractatus is ordered according to That-senteces.
World/description/properties/Tractatus/Wittgenstein/Tetens: Problem: the world must have the properties, without which it could not be described by statements - Statements: must obey the logic - therefore the logical structure conditions of our statements are also the conditions of possibility of the described world itself - (6.13)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
