Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Exterior/interior, outside/inside (philosophy): the distinction is important in connection with statements. If the statement is made within a system, it can be problematic to make an assertion about the system with that statement. The distinction between outside and inside replaces in some theories, e.g. in the system theory, the distinction between form and content. This is to avoid the counterintuitive acceptance of a content without form or a form without content. See also form, content, circularity, systems, theories, mereology, system theory.

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.
