Linguistics

(4,323 words)

Author(s): Ineichen, Hans | Stoellger, Philipp
1. Language as a Theme Language is a theme in various disciplines. In addition to philosophy, especially the philosophy of language, a number of empirical disciplines focus on language as a topic of research—traditional philology, linguistics, and related disciplines such as sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics. We are familiar with language in everyday use, in conversation and agreements. Linguistics and the philosophy of language take ordinary speech as the starting point of their deliberations.…

Author(s): Stoellger, Philipp | Martin, Gerhard Marcel | Lukas, Josef
[German Version] I. Philosophy of Religion – II. Dogmatics – III. Ethics – IV. Practical Theology – V. Psychology I. Philosophy of Religion Creativity became an issue in the Judeo-Christian context with regard to the Creator. In contrast to the Platonic demiurge or to the Aristotelian unmoved mover, the triune God is creative. The (re-)assigning of creativity to the human being should be understood against this background. It applies to the human only in a limited way. From the perspective of the philosophy of religion, creativity exhibits different accentuations in response to its opposites: in contrast to tradition, creativity represents innovation; it is the “new” as o…

Ideology

(2,041 words)

Author(s): Bohlender, Matthias | Stoellger, Philipp | Lohmann, Friedrich
[German Version] I. Philosophy – II. Sociology of Knowledge I. Philosophy 1. The meaning of the word ideology cannot be separated from its historical use (a) as an epistemological term denoting a general theory of perceptions, ideas, and notions (ideo-logy), and (b) as a politico-philosophical term denoting a general critique of knowledge, an analysis intended to clear up false or distorted forms and objects of cognition (Ideological criticism). Although the origin of these two sides of ideology is usually traced to F. Bacon, Francis's discussion of “idols,” its theoretical career really began in late 18th-century France with Antoine Louis Claude Destutt de Tracy (1754–1836) ¶ and the Idéologues. In the 19th century, K. Marx and F. Engels gave the term its modern pejorative meaning of a system of ideas necessarily erroneous in its reflection of social reality. Despite various transformations of the purely negative sense in the first half of the 20th century, it was not until the 1980s, in the context of th…

(664 words)

Author(s): Stoellger, Philipp
[German Version] General: The German word Illusion originally meant criticism of art as a mental delusion (Plato); in the 17th and 18th centuries, it came to denote trompe l'oeil art. In English illusion in the sense of “deceptive appearance” came into use in the 14th century. Criticism of Metaphysics: British empiricism (I) employed illusions pejoratively in the sense of “erroneous notions.” T.

[German Version] I. Chance vs. Contingency – II. Accident vs. Essence – III. Chance vs. Order – IV. Paradigms of Chance I. Chance vs. Contingency Chance (Contingency/Chance) and contingency are among the theologically significant constructs of conceptual history. The word contingency derives from Lat. contingere (translating συμβαίνειν/ symbainein or ¶ ένδέχεσϑαι/ endechesthai, first used by Marius Victorinus); chance derives through Old French from Lat. cadere, “fall/befall” and accident from accidere/accidentia, with the German loan-translation Zufall first used…

Author(s): Hewlett, Martinez J. | Wegter-McNelly, Kirk | Stoellger, Philipp
[English Version] I. In der Biologie 1.Randomness In der vordarwinistischen Sicht auf die biologische Welt war kein Platz für Begriffe wie »randomness« (»Wahllosigkeit«) und »chance« (»Chance, Z.«). Die Lebewesen galten als durch den Schöpfer (Schöpfung) zweckvoll erschaffen. Selbst die physikalische Welt, in ihrer strengen Bestimmung durch I. Newton, war deterministisch und somit letztlich vorhersagbar (Determinismus/Indeterminismus). Randomness als solche ist dabei jedoch eher ein mathematisches denn ein physikalisches Konzept. Im Zeitalter der …
