Thomas Aquinas on World/Thinking - Dictionary of Arguments
Holz I 32
World/Thinking/Tradition: the premodern philosophy had, as matter of course, founded the thinking about the world from the point of view of the world. For thinking and the thinker itself are also experienced as part of the world.
DescartesVs: shows that everything in the world can be questioned, except the doubt of the doubting itself.
Until then, the sentence by Thomas Aquinas applied:
Holz I 33
Recognition/Aquinas: "For everything that is ordered to a goal, the rule of its governing and order must be taken from the goal." ((s) The thought to be thought determines the thought).
HolzVsThomas: so the method of recognition and the order of the concepts must be determined by the object. This is naively realistic!
According to Descartes, that is to say, if everything is doubtful except thinking itself, the method and order of the concepts must be determined from the point of view of thinking.
Thus it is possible that the world is posited only by the form of our thinking.
Husserl: "The natural ground of being is secondary in its self-validity and presupposes the transcendental."_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
