|Rules, philosophy: rules are restrictions of a domain of possibilities for subjects, communities or functionaries, or generally for acting individuals or groups. Rules may be implicit or explicit, and may be implemented by ordinance or by jointly developing equally authorized participants, e.g. in a discourse. In another sense, rules can be understood as actual regularities that can be discovered by observation. These rules can be discovered not only in action, but also in the nature of objects such as linguistic structures. See also norms, values, rule following, private language, language rules, discourse, ethics, morality, cognitivism, intuitionism, society, practice.<_____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Rules/Structure/Mathematics/Thiel: in all examples we have not only searched for suitable rules, on whose premises our data "fit", but rather the application of rules has only been made possible by structuring, by entering a very specific structure of the problem situation and argumentation possibilities related to it into the problem handling.
Example Pythagorean theorem: here the right-angled triangle had to be inserted first. E.g. irrationality of root two: here the alienation of the divisor had to be recognized as an essential property._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
