Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

 
Circularity: Circularity is an expression for the problem that something cannot be explained by itself. The problem arises, for example, when, in an attempted definition, no independent second expression is found for an object or for the relations of this object to other objects. See also circle, vicious circle principle, totality, wholes, type theory, self-reference.

Davidson: instead of a translation manual one should develop a T-theory. At the beginning of the investigation, there is no knowledge of the speaker's knowledge, wishes or beliefs.

Dilemma: interdependence of belief and meaning. We have no chance to open up one without the other. The radical interpreter must break into this circle (> hermeneutic circle).
