Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Completeness, philosophy: A) Systems are complete, if all valid statements are provable. B) The question of the completeness of a description is always concerned with specific purposes of this description within the framework of a theory which applies to the described objects. It is a peculiarity in the case of particle physics that the complete description of elementary particles does not allow the differentiation of other particles of the same type. See also incompleteness, determinateness, determination, distinction, indistinguishability.

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.
