S. Motta - « How’s Everything ? »

S. Motta publie dans Axiomathes un article intitulé « How’s Everything? ».

Résumé :

After a critical presentation of the debate between absolutists and relativists regarding generality where I show that the debate is framed in a way that is bound to be harmful to the relativist’s position, I examine critically one of the customary arguments advanced against the relativist : the expressibility objection (according to which the relativist would be logically unable to express her own position). I then propose a radical way out of this debate — usually centered on semantic paradoxes –- by arguing that it rests on an unintelligible notion of “object”. I finally introduce a useful distinction between omnis and totus to elucidate the notions in play.
