Download PDF by Imogen Dickie: Fixing Reference (Context & Content)

By Imogen Dickie

Imogen Dickie develops an account of aboutness-fixing for innovations approximately traditional items, and of reference-fixing for the singular phrases we use to precise them. Extant discussions of this subject tread a weary direction via descriptivist proposals, causalist possible choices, and makes an attempt to mix the main appealing components of every. The account built here's a new starting. It starts off with easy rules. the 1st connects aboutness and fact: a trust is
about the thing upon whose homes its fact or falsity relies. the second one connects fact and justification: justification is fact conducive; in most cases and permitting exceptions, a topic whose ideals are justified can be unfortunate in the event that they will not be actual, and never only fortunate in the event that they are. These
principles—one connecting aboutness and fact; the opposite fact and justification—combine to yield a 3rd precept connecting aboutness and justification: a physique of ideals is set the thing upon which its linked technique of justification converges; the item whose homes a topic justifying ideals during this approach may be unfortunate to get incorrect and never simply good fortune to get correct. the 1st a part of the e-book proves an actual model of this precept.

Read e-book online Ästhetik des Erhabenen Bei Pseudo-Longin und Christine PDF

By Stefan Kraft

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Rhetorik / Phonetik / Sprechwissenschaft, notice: 1,7, Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen (Neuphilologisches Institut), Veranstaltung: Vom Erhabenen, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: „Was ist denn nun das Erhabene?“
„Ich bemühe mich zwar zu
verstehen was once es ist, weiß es aber nicht.“
Das Erhabene, ein Begriff der bereits seit der Antike durch die Theorien der Wissenschaften geistert und der sich seit dem ersten rhetorischen Werk „Perí hýpsous“ den Versuchen einer Definition beharrlich entzieht, trat in der jüngsten Theoriegeschichte der Philosophie durch den französischen Philosoph Jean-François Lyotard, wieder ins Rampenlicht.
Dabei bringt Lyotard, „einer der Hauptverfechter der Postmoderne“ (Pries, 1989, S. 2), das Erhabene als eine ästhetische Kategorie mit der Avantgarde in Verbindung.
Im deutschsprachigen Raum folgen dem Franzosen allen voran der Ästhetiker und Kulturphilosoph Wolfgang Welsch und dessen Schülerin Christine Pries.
Letztere, die neben ihrer advertising über den Begriff des Erhabenen bei Kant einen Sammelband zum Erhabenen, in dem neben Welsch und Lyotard selbst noch andere Theoretiker zu Wort kommen, herausgegeben hat, beschäftigt das Erhabene speziell als komplexer, paradoxer Begriff, dessen verschieden „Aspekte und Implikationen“ 5ergründet werden müssen.
Diese Komplexität des Erhabenen kommt durch die vielfältige Aufladung und Erweiterung in seiner Begriffsgeschichte, von der antiken Rhetoriktheorie, über die Ästhetik-Theorien der Renaissance und des Humanismus bis hin zur kantschen Systematisierung, und die eben so vielfältige Abschwächung und Eindämmung, z.B. in Hegels und Adornos' Ästhetik Theorien, zustande.
Gegenstand dieser Arbeit sollen daher sowohl die Veränderungen, als auch die Konstanten des Erhabenen-Begriffes seit dem rhetorik-theoretischen Ursprungs bei Pseudo-Longin sein.
Dabei werde ich zu Beginn die theoretische pseudo-longin’sche Abhandlung darstellen und dessen Begriff des Erhabenen abbilden, um in einem zweiten Teil die Begrifflichkeit bei Christine Pries im Kontext der Postmoderne zu veranschaulichen. Im dritten Teil schließlich werde ich die beiden Ansätze miteinander konfrontieren, um dadurch die Unterschiede und Gemeinsamkeiten in der Begriffsentwicklung des Erhaben aufzuzeigen.

Kristin Davidse,Lieven Vandelanotte,Hubert Cuyckens's Subjectification, Intersubjectification and PDF

By Kristin Davidse,Lieven Vandelanotte,Hubert Cuyckens

This quantity goals to reach at a fine-grained and grammar-based figuring out of the notions of (inter-)subjectivity and (inter-)subjectification of their program to grammaticalization learn. when it comes to linguistic conception, place is taken vis-à-vis latest ways to (inter-)subjectification that are both too slim or too common by way of addressing questions: (i) what's the relation among (inter-)subjectivity and pragmatics, and (ii) on what grounds can subjective and intersubjective meanings be distinguished?

In the descriptive sections of the quantity, those theoretical issues are faced with huge analytical, and infrequently additionally quantitative, research of empirical info mostly from English but additionally from Romance languages. the focal point in those case reviews is at the analytical and diachronic family among subjectivity and intersubjectivity, with specific emphasis at the query how linguistic syntagms may well shift in the direction of the expression of meanings of which the hearer is an important half. The domain names lined comprise adverbials and modals, but additionally the noun word, to this point a comparatively under-researched sector in grammaticalization reviews. jointly those 3 components ascertain huge verification of current hypotheses concerning the relative order during which subjectification and intersubjectification take place.

This quantity is especially of curiosity to researchers and graduate scholars with a unique curiosity in subjectification, intersubjectification and grammaticalization, and with a normal curiosity in language switch. the amount can also be welcomed via practical linguists (in a vast sense), because it is the 1st to deliver eclectic functionalists' reflections to endure so explicitly on grammaticalization.
