Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

Totality, philosophy: is the entirety of the components of a domain. An entity that can be described by specifying the characteristics, properties, rules, possible states, the possible actions, possible changes etc. Statements about totalities are impossible if it is required that the standpoint for these statements would have to be localized both inside and outside of this totality. Since it is impossible to define a totality without a circle and the help of concepts from this totality itself, it is problematic to speak of a totality of the world. See also paradoxes, wholes, set theory, universal class, universal set, mereological sum, systems, exterior/interior.

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.

Grenz I 19
Totality/Adorno: totality expresses itself in the fact that one cannot ward off the comprehensive, all-managing world in any other way than through means which are similar to it. (Impromptus, p.22).
Grenz I 113
Totality/Hegel/Adorno/AdornoVsHegel/Grenz: the negativity of the whole is expressed by Hegel as a positive totality according to Adorno. In this, Hegel's philosophy is an image, but a broken one. The structure of the blindness context is illustrated into that: 'mirror-inverted'.
Grenz I 158
Totality/Adorno/Grenz: the concept of totality is ambivalent - on the one hand, it is a description of the real but false totality, on the other hand the idea of the correct one.
Grenz I 130
Whole/Adorno/Grenz: ... the force effective in any single determination of the whole is not only its negation, but also the negative, untruth.
