Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Limits, philosophy: here we are concerned with the classification of knowledge domains or the identification of possibilities for thought. We need to determine what belongs to a domain and what does not. Problems arise wherever something is to be described beyond an area by the means of this area itself ('impracticability', 'unthinkability','inconceivability'), as well as where an area is solely covered by means originating from this area itself ( Circularity).

Holz I 73/74
Infinite/construction/Leibniz: Leibniz makes the general connexion in an infinite set construible for the finite mind as the mathematically infinite, as a boundary concept in an infinitesimal method of construction.
Border/Leibniz/Holz: every finite mind has only the knowledge of a limited section, but with this also the realization that a boundary exists, and with it a world which extends beyond this limit.
Holz: the ability to exceed is an a priori determination of "boundaries". (Holz I 155 Helmuth Plessner: "Material a priori": the boundary is a material determinant moment of every finite being.)
