Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Internalism: a term for the endeavor to gain knowledge and insights about an object solely through the means of the theory, to the subject domain of which the object to be examined belongs. Thus, for example, influences such as deviating language usage or changing interests are excluded. If an object is covered by several theories, a clarification is to be made about the theory in which statements are to be made. Antonym of externalism. See also twin earth.
