Günther: Zeno on Being and Time

Zitat

“Zeno’s paradox stemmed from the fact that Being stands for the class of all ortho-objects designated by a single value. Time, on the other hand, belongs to the first class of pseudo-objects which require designation by a duality of values. When Zeno confronted Being and Time, he effected, formally speaking, a confrontation between value-singularity and value-duality. It is obvious that no two-valued system can display all the features which Zeno’s problem implies. The introduction of a third value is the first step to bring Time within the range of logical analysis.” (p. 402) #Günther #Zeno #Being #Time

Günther: The Kenogrammatic Theory of Logic

Zitat

“The kenogrammatic theory of logic offers such a locus; and thus Time is rendered noneliminable. But the introduction of a third value and a concomitant ontological locus gives us only a new ontology – not yet a logic to think about it in terms of designation and nondesignation. The theory of Time, therefore, requires a wider basis than three-place kenogrammatic structures provide.” (402sq.) #Günther #KenogrammaticTheoryOfLogic #time

Günther: Time and Event

Zitat

“From the very outset, the participants in the discussion disagreed. The Eleatic school of thought excluded Time from objective existence. But Heraclitus considered the static aspect of the universe as deceptive. According to him, no thing is identical with itself; its ultimate essence is an event.” (p. 396) #Günther #time #event

Günther: The Problem of Time

Zitat

“The problem whether Time can or cannot be eliminated reveals itself now as a spurious alternative. Behind it looms the larger issue of two-valued classic and many-valued transclassic logic. In Aristotelian logic, the progressive elimination of Time is, indeed, an inescapable postulate. It does not provide Time with an ontological locus of its own.” (p. 402) #Günther #time #logic
