Psychology Dictionary of ArgumentsHome
|World, philosophy: here we are concerned about what is counted as a world. If the world is conceived as a totality of objects, states, processes and their relations, as well as the totality of actions and thoughts, no statements are possible about the world which are not circular. See also universe, ontology, totality, whole, outer/inner, paradoxes, circularity._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

George Berkeley on World - Dictionary of Arguments
Stegmüller IV 384/385
Berkeley/Stegmüller: There is an ambiguity: a) Our view of the world is not correct. - b) God himself perceives a four-dimensional world - (of modern physics).
1. MackieVsBerkeley: The anatomy of perception also belongs to the physical world.
2. If there is freedom of will, we should also be able to bring about changes in God's ideas.
3. According to Berkeley God's ideas should be free of contradictions, but not complete. - I.e. not completely determined. - They have the status of intentional objects. For example, I can think of an object without knowing its exact place. - Analogously, God's ideas would also have to be indeterminate.
4. Many details arise quite naturally. - According to Berkeley, they become artificially more complicated.
