Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

 
Signs: signs are recognizable and definable forms that an observer can assign to two domains. The first domain is the repertoire of available forms that allows a distinction of similarity and dissimilarity within this domain, the second domain is a set of objects which also distinguishes between similarity and dissimilarity between these objects as well as distinguishing the objects of the second domain from the forms of the first domain. There are no signs without observation or interpretation. See also language, words, symbols, icons, systems, image, image theory, pictures, assignment.

Wolf I 56
Signs/Mill: E.g robbers in One Thousand and One Nights: they make chalk marks on the door: the sign has a purpose (the distinction), but it does not actually have any meaning! Here, too, an attribute of the house is not denotated, but only the recognition is made possible.
N.B.: the plan was thwarted by the fact that all houses were given a chalk mark, so that the distinction was undermined.
Mill: proper names are analog to these chalk marks. They are only meaningless characters.
