in analytic philosophy is understood by meaning an object, that with the interpretation of onenatural or artificial language to an expression one assigns, which appears as its name. Such an object can be a thing or also a thought over a thing. Therefore one speaks in logical semantics of two fundamental kinds of the meaning:on the one hand of the extensionalen importance in form of an article or a class of articles, which are named the expression; on the other hand of the intensionalen importance, which shows the sense of an expression. By the meaning of a linguistic expression with thatMeaning of other linguistic expressions or an article range correlated, the sense of a linguistic expression is explained, i.e. that, whereby this expression with evenly this object correlates and not with any other object. The problem definition of importance and sense have God praise Frege, Charles of Sanders Peirce, Bertrand Russell, Rudolf Carnap among other things in its work treats.
Meaning has another sense with God praise Frege still another. The meaning of a statement and/or. a descriptor is after Frege the Extension of this statement and/or. thisDescriptor, contrary to the sense of the statement and/or. the descriptor, which lies in their Intension. The meaning of a word is for it that that is designated by this word, thus - in other terminology - the Designat of the word. ThisView of the term “meaning” did not become generally accepted outside of the logic. There is more than 20 different interpretations this term, and the opinions of the representatives of the relevant disciplines (logic, general linguistics among other things) go here far apart.
the term of the meaning can be interpreted very different:
- Relativistically seen, the meaning is something subjective, which is dependent on the respective viewer.
- Opposite postulate metaphyisch - idealistic currents of philosophy as well as many religions absolute meanings behindunite or all things.
- For certain things, within a certain social group, a common meaning can be defined (e.g. Traffic signs) - the meaning is thus the result of a convention.
Meaning existed A priori, but does not become determinednatural phenomena or also artifacts attached by humans. This characteristic divides it with the pragmatic information, with which it is to a large extent congruent. Meaning-meaning processes can e.g. Self organization processes its. Meaning becomes of some humans, depending upon their subjective view, religion or world view, only people work or creations of accepted higher natures (Gods) awarded, while the results are regarded “unconsciously “procedures running off as insignificant. This distinction is arbitrarily, there also the results e.g. the evolution process fundamental meaning forus have.
persistence of importance
it gives no conservation law for information, important information is stored, one tries however usually it after possibility to receive. But a substantial expenditure is driven. Important information goeslost, has this often considerable consequences. A crucial principle of the preservation of important information is the principle of the data protection by production of identical copies.
“Meme “seem to keep from the outside regarded, to strive for it tooit increases and to spread, whereby they are subject to a kind mutation, like the genes in biology. This view means that information can remain only for a long time, if they are passed on. With the passing on it changes. Even if the wordswere stored, and thus firmly published, they changed their meaning nevertheless. With the Memen not words or formulations are essentially passed on, but meanings or their core.
literal one and transferred meaning
the literal meaning regard each wordand/or. a statement with its own and/or. original meaning. The transferred meaning regards the sense, which stands behind a statement, for example as poetic picture (metaphor) or by meaning transmission. The two forms partly became in the German language in thatOrthography by separation and writing together distinctive, the distinction was waived however by the spelling reform of 1996. Since thereby information is lost, that is disputed and is revised.
Example of literal and transferred meaning: to bathe go: 1. In the swimming pool orinto the bath tub go bathing and. 2. One happens with what one begins, a misfortune, an attempt fails.
