Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Translation Holism: The translation holism is a demand for theories. If a theory is supposed to be translated into another theory, all terms used in the initial theory must be translatable into the new theory. This requires that the subject domain of the initial theory be a subset of the set of objects to which the terms of the target theory can refer. See also reduction, reductionism, holism.

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.
