  • "Meinongianism" x
Clear All Riccardo Martinelli Meinongian Psychology Abstract: Meinong’s early writings include a number of discussions that are in line with the mainstream psychological research of his time. This is not at odds with the parallel theorizing tendency of his philosophical psychology. Even after developing the theory of objects, and despite handing psychological research over to his pupils, Meinong kept thinking highly of psychology. Meinong’s psychology is in tune with his most relevant philosophical doctrines. The

I shall present in this article an original Meinongian version of presentism, according to which there is nothing that is not present (this is the presentist aspect of the theory), even if there are now things that do not now exist and, more generally, there are now things that do not exist (this is the Meinongian aspect). I shall try to demonstrate that this theory is a viable and serious option for presentists who aim at dealing with three problems typically connected with presentism: the triviality objection; the problem of the reference of true propositions

The Semantics of Existence and Nonexistence

MEINONGIAN SCOREKEEPING Matjaž Potrč and Vojko Strahovnik Summary Some commitments at the interface of semantics and ontology, such as num- bers, symphonies, incomplete objects, values, oughts or possibilities tend to appear problematic. The scorekeeping approach to semantics introduces con- textually shifting parameters that allow for construal of truth as indirect corre- spondence. Meinong did recognize diversity and richness that is made possible by the non-reductionist engagement of the scorekeeping approach. Because of his commitment to the deep

ON MODAL MEINONGIANISM Nicola Ciprotti Noi che conosciamo i segni dell’alfabeto metafisico sappiamo quali gioie e quali dolori si racchiudono entro un portico, l’angolo di una strada o ancora in una stanza, sulla superficie di un tavolo, fra i fianchi di una scatola. Giorgio De Chirico Summary The paper discusses a prominent version of contemporary Meinongianism, namely, Graham Priest’s Noneism. Upon a survey of its main features and as- sets, critical remarks are put forth concerning Noneism stance about the status of impossible worlds. The

MEINONGIAN THEORY OF MORAL JUDGMENTS Matjaž Potr and Vojko Strahovnik Abstract Meinong held it that there exist genuine ought-beliefs underpinning moral judgment. A neo-Meinongian theory of moral judgment based upon ought- beliefs is presented first. Moral judgments are held to be genuine beliefs pos- sessing constitutive moral phenomenology. The phenomenology of intentional- ity thesis underlies this approach. It is thereby opposed to treating intentional- ity and phenomenology in a separate manner. The very possibility of ought- beliefs as a special kind

METAPHYSICS OF MEINONGIAN AESTHETIC VALUE Dale Jacquette Abstract A Meinongian metaphysics makes aesthetic value a matter of subjective feel- ing rather than an objective property of an aesthetically appreciated object. The advantages of a Meinongian subjectivistic aesthetic value theory are explained and defended on multiple grounds, especially against the objection that objec- tivizing beauty and other values in the sense of regarding aesthetic value as an objective property of aesthetic objects is a more natural way to understand the semantics of Arnaud Dewalque A Critique of Meinongian Assumptions Abstract: This article argues that Meinong’s analysis of assumption, while exploring the variety of phenomenological primitives in a more promising way than Brentano did, nevertheless fails to adequately account for (i) the noncom- mittal character of assumptive attitudes and (ii) the difference between assump- tive and other neighbouring attitudes. Section 1 outlines an overall framework for the philosophical analysis of assumptions and cognitive attitudes
