1 Language and Communication

-
Hauptschule
Seminar / Seminar
german language

Language communication as a special form of communication, a form of purposeful cognitive influence characterized by rational control over exercising influence:

it deals with the arbitrary nature of the relationship between the means of expression and the ideas expressed;
it is about the conventionality of the system of signs and symbols;
the infinite size of the body of signs and symbols;
about structural transparency of the communication process;
the partial cognitive cooperation (good will and trust) and other elements.

This seminar is intended to give participants an impression of the way in which today’s philosophical research (especially theory of meaning and speech-act theory) has attempted to develop a uniform and systematic conception of this special form of communication. One central idea in all of these concepts, which has been the subject of philosophical attempts at explanation due to the difficulties it has presented over time, is that of what is actually said with an utterance of statement.

This seminar will also focus on attempts to understand this idea and the problems associated with it.
