thanks for pointers
Well, there are ontologies in which there is a class/category NOTHING or
would you be able to point to some examples? I'd be interested but cant think of any (uh)
Are you sure? Are you saying that there is no value in a category called nothing as such?
How do you know?
A fine (and inexpensive) basic intro text is Wilfrid Hodges'
Thanks for the recommendations - As mentioned before, I am reasonably familiar with 'logic'
(in the reasoning sense) , as expressed in natural language - I have studied to some extent the resources above, including John's website which I use regularly as reference
But I do not find the much about 'nothing'/ (double uh)
CM To the contrary, classical western thinking has accommodated the concept
1( Is there an ontological category called nothing? If Ontology is rooted in Aristotelian 'Categories', could you please point me to the category where 'nothing' fits in? If not, how can
classical western thinking, based on aristotelian logic, have a logical role for 'nothing'
Is this question not worth an answer perhaps? sorry if it is too stupid a question
2) If classical western thinking has accoomodated for it quite robustly, is there a body of knowledge (rather than the absence of it) as evidence of what you say?
Thanks a lot
