|Theories: theories are statement systems for the explanation of observations, e.g. of behavior or physical, chemical or biological processes. When setting up theories, a subject domain, a vocabulary of the terms to be used and admissible methods of observation are defined. In addition to explanations, the goal of the theory formation is the predictability and comparability of observations. See also systems, models, experiments, observation, observation language, theoretical terms, theoretical entities, predictions, analogies, comparisons, evidence, verification, reduction, definitions, definability._____________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. |
Theory/Bubner: according to Hegel, it occurs with the claim for a comprehensive penetration of reality, so that the call for implementation into practice becomes loud.
The mediation of theory and practice can only be understood in the sense that the achieved completion of the theory proves a transformation as necessary and logical.
The assumed contrast between two sides is misleading.
It does not require complex transformation processes, nor the most speculative approaches can be detached from the psyche.
Platon/Bubner: Problem: we are used to seeing him through the Aristotelian glasses. (This applies in particular to the differentiation between theory and practice).
