Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Language, philosophy: language is a set of phonetic or written coded forms fixed at a time for the exchange of information or distinctions within a community whose members are able to recognize and interpret these forms as signs or symbols. In a wider sense, language is also a sign system, which can be processed by machines. See also communication, language rules, meaning, meaning change, information, signs, symbols, words, sentences, syntax, semantics, grammar, pragmatics, translation, interpretation, radical interpretation, indeterminacy.

Sprache/Bigelow/Pargetter: die Sätze der Sprache können in zwei Teile aufgeteilt werden:
a) Theoreme (logisch notwendig).
b) Nichttheoreme. (Diese können auch falsch sein).
Nichttheoreme: sogar sie können notwendig wahr sein. Bsp dass Elektronen negative Ladung haben.
metaphysisch notwendig/Bigelow/Pargetter: solche Sätze können wir „metaphysisch notwendig“ nennen. Weil seine Wahrheit nicht von Theoremen garantiert ist. (Oder nicht aus der Logik allein folgt).
