|Holism: Holism is the assumption that the elements or the subject domain of a theory are accessible only with simultaneous availability of all elements or objects of this domain. It is also assumed that a change to an element does not exclude changes to all other elements at least. The statement "everything is connected with everything" is however a wrong characterization of the holism, since it is logically erroneous.|

Holism/Language/Fodor/Lepore: Holism is also a revisionism: it could answer HolismVsDummett: "all the worse for our conventional understanding of how languages and theories are learned and mediated."
Quine, Dennett, Stich, the Churchlands and many others are strongly tempted by this revisionist direction.
