Wie Dinge Sind : Noch Eine Alltagsontologie (Hardcover) (Christian Kanzian)
About this item
This book is about “how things are.” It starts from the principles of a descriptive (i.e. “everyday ontological”) ontology of things to develop a theory about the title question that is based on the notion of “mode”. Modes are concrete, individual determinants of things. The power of the theory is then tested to determine its usefulness for developing an ontology of things.
