Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Screenshot Tabelle Begriffe

Reality, philosophy: A. It is controversial, which should be counted to reality, that is to say, the set of objects and states which occur in the world. Theories differ strongly regarding the definitions of facts and situations or the consideration of internal states of subjects. Thus, a situation can be described in many ways, whereby very different assumptions about the involved objects and relations come into play. See also ontology, realism, recognition, epistemology, constructivism, facts, situations, internal/external, totality, relations, simulation. B.Reality is an expression for the totality of what is opposed to the perception of subjects and not only imagined. In this sense, reality is what is independent of us; on the other hand, some authors regard their formability as proof of their existence. See also dependence, independence, possibility, necessity, actualism, realism, idealism, constructivism, present, simulation, aboutness, circularity, objects, things, order.

Adorno XIII 104
Reality/Idealism/Kant/Adorno: in idealism, the real should be conceived as something mediated by the subjectivity, and not merely as something opposed to subjectivity.
That is, that we know of the external reality in no other way than in the form of judgments and thus mediated through thought.
But if, in the sense of this principle, Kant and the post-Kantian idealists believed that what is to be uniformly traced back to a subjective principle, then this is the principle of reason as that of thought.
