Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Transitivity: here, we are concerned with the property of relations to be able to continue in the sense that if an a is in relation to a b and b is in relation to a c then a is in the same relation to c. Transitivity in sets means that an element of a subset is at the same time an element of the set containing this subset, or a subset M1 of a subset M2 is also a subset of the M2 containing set M3. See also relations.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.

Transitivität/Keenan/Gärdenfors: Keenan (1984, p. 203): merkt an, dass viele transitive Verben besondere Arten von Patienten (patiens, Objekten) erfordern Bsp „pellen“ erfordert Objekte mit spezieller Oberfläche, „verschütten“ erfordert Flüssigkeiten oder relativ feine Granulate. Im Gegensatz dazu gibt es keine Verben, die die Beschaffenheit der Handelnden in ähnlicher Weise einschränken.
