Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Relations, philosophy: relations are that what can be discovered or produced in objects or states when compared to other objects or other states with regard to a selected property. For example, dimensional differences between objects A and B, which are placed into a linguistic order with the expression "larger" or "smaller" as a link, are determinations of relations which exist between the objects. Identity or equality is not accepted as a relation by most authors. See also space, time, order, categories, reflexivity, symmetry, transitivity.

Relations/Waismann: How are relations possible? If the relationship aRb is present, the situation consists of three parts.
To the two terms of the relation and the relation itself. But the terms a and b must themselves again be linked with the relation R, otherwise the fact would fall into three separate terms.
It thus appears that there is a need for further relations which connect a and b to R, a type of mortar. Infinite regress. (> Kant,> Fichte, and Bubner).
Waismann: such a question appears to be the essence or the structure of reality, whereas it is evoked only by the mist around our concepts. This is alsoo caused by our own language.
