Picture Theory: When discussing the picture theory it comes to the question, to what extent a sentence is image of a fact, a situation or a section of the world. How should the sentence parts correspond to parts of the world? Is there such a correspondence at all? - See also Relations, Map Example, Tractatus, Wittgenstein, Russell, Picture.

Adorno XIII 214
Picture theory/materialism/Adorno: the picture theory (originating from Epicurus) played its great role especially in the history of Marxist materialism. In dialectical materialism (called by Adorno > DIAMAT), it is the thesis that the theory is to be an image of reality, quite unconcerned about the fact that the mental, the intentional, is concerned with facts, judges them, but is not similar to them and is not like them or like a picture. It is a great achievement of Husserl to have proved this.
