The task of philosophy is to recognize this principle as the ground of all being. 35 In considering "being as being" we rely on principles which are presupposed as conditio sine qua non of our argumentation, of which the most important is the principle of (non-)contradiction, since it excludes the possibility that something is and is not at the 5/5(1).

Treatment of Heraclitus in Aristotle"s analysis of the principle of non-contradiction by Albert Edward Wingell Download PDF EPUB FB2

In logic, the law of non-contradiction (LNC) (also known as the law of contradiction, principle of non-contradiction (PNC), or the principle of contradiction) states that contradictory propositions cannot both be true in the same sense at the same time, e. the two propositions "A is B" and "A is not B" are mutually exclusive.

Formally this is expressed as the tautology ¬(p ∧ ¬p). This paper deals with the strategy of defence that Aristotle dedicates to the principle of contradiction; the analysis is concentrated on passages of Metaphysics Gamma 4.

The main thesis of the paper is that Aristotle’s strategy is an ontological, and therefore not only a logical, one: the principle is defended on the basis of the, from an. In Metaphysics Gamma, Aristotle understands the principle of non-contradiction (PNC) as the most certain principle of all such that it is impossible to be mistaken aboutAristotle is also concerned with the fact that some people may reject this principle.

In that respect, he constructs arguments aiming to defend PNC as a true opinion. Wedin, Michael V., a. “Aristotle on the firmness of the principle of non-contradiction,” Phronesis, –––, b. “On the use and abuse of non-contradiction: Aristotle's critique of Protagoras and Heraclitus in Metaphysics Gamma 5,” Oxford Studies in Ancient Philosophy, –   The problem with this interpretation is that Anaximenes was there before Heraclitus: in his theory of condensation-rarefaction as the basic principle accounting for degrees of heat or cold, as well as the differentiation of substances, he had already made the decisive move which rejects the naive view of 'the opposites'.

Aristotle, the philosopher of the rationality (city and individuals) Aristotle is one of the most famous Greek philosophers. Aristotle was a pupil of Plato and was first reverent to him then very critical, about Plato’s theory of ideas for example. His own work lies mainly in. Physics.

Next, in book Delta, comes Aristotle's "philosophical lexicon": some forty philosophical terms are explained and their different senses. Aristotle thought that the law of non-contradiction (also the law of identity and the law of excluded middle) were the fundamental laws governing the theoretical part of our reasoning faculty.

He believed that all human beings use them when they think and speak about things. Metaphysics is the branch of philosophy that examines the fundamental nature of reality, including the relationship between mind and matter, between substance and attribute, and between potentiality and actuality.

The word "metaphysics" comes from two Greek words that, together, literally mean "after or behind or among [the study of] the natural". The goals of this paper are two-fold: I wish to clarify the Aristotelian conception of the law of non-contradiction as a metaphysical rather than a semantic or logical principle, and to defend the truth of the principle in this I will explain what it in fact means that the law of non-contradiction is a metaphysical core idea is that the law of non-contradiction is a.
