Abstract


IDEA, PHENOMENA AND PERCEPTION –
FROM A PHILOLOGICAL AND AESTHETICAL POINT OF VIEW

The 10-part cycle Colours (1993) of Heinz Gappmayr, consisting of 5 monochrome
coloured paintings and the 5 according terms on white canvas’, refers to the relation
between phenomena and perception.

The American logician Willard van Orman Quine explains in his principal work Word
& Object (1960) how language is able to relate precisely or vaguely to a determined
object.

Immanuel Kant describes in the Critic of pure Reason (1761), that we have only our
particular mode of perceiving reality which is peculiar to us, and that „all our cognition
starts from the senses goes from there to the brain/intellect and reaches finally the
reason…“.

In the Ways of World making und Languages of Art (1968) Nelson Goodman
analyses, that there is existing not only (just) one real world, but different ‘Versions of
Worlds’, and that the Invention of Facts is a perceptual-psychological question.

René Descartes has explained in his Discourse about the Method of the right Use of
Reason… (1637) how to achieve the cognition with most simple forms, like lines
which are used in the mathematics.
