Description: Just my thoughts on something really skull wrecking lol. So just watch when your trying to think this over. it might just mean a pile of balls to you all but i really did sit down to think about this lol
THE CONCEPT OF MEANING -------------------------------------------
If everything has a concept, and the meaning of the word concept is meaning, then how do we define the concept of 'meaning'. Basically, we delve into the statement of what is the meaning of meaning? Does this statement defy the rules of philosophy? Is there even any possible answer to that question? Or does philosophy have rules and logics? Or even a concept...at that :) In basic terms, we know philosophy to be the science of life. So therefore it does have meaning. Philosophy does pique concepts of living. Right this is even wrecking my head as I think of possibilities to the next step ha ha.
This reminded me of the old Abbott and Costello schtick, Who's on First? You can get so totally confused, you'll tie your brain in a knot! One thing: I think you really mean "Philosophy does pique concepts of living..." - or at least I think that's what you mean. This was cute and interesting. I chucked aloud when I read your first sentence. mae
I wish philosophy were the meaning of life rather than a hundred unresolved debates on meaning that render the term meaningless. In terms of literature, words have only the meaning we assign them, so 'painting' with terminology is quite possible (and is actually the basis of writing that most appeals to me). You have effectively presented a conundrum concerning conceptual and concrete meaning (which, like Einstein's theory, is all relative). Take care. Bill.
