Nicelna tocka

Figure one from //The Analysis of Sensations// by E Mach, 1897.

Machova upodobitev nicelne tocke iz njegove knjige Analiza obcutkov, konec 19 stoletja. Bistvo nicelne tocke je da omogoca predstavljanje in opazovanje okolice, vendar sama ni predstavljena ali upodobljena.

   Profesor Matjaz Potrc je v soboto 9. aprila 2016 na simpoziju posvecenemu delu dr. Andreja Uleta predstavil svoj prispevek z naslovom Nicelna tocka nanasanja (Referential Zero Point).

Jaakko Hintikka

I've met Jaakko Hintikka at a philosophical congress in Florence some time ago and exchanged with him some thoughts. At the time he worked on the Wittgenstein's literary group English background. I've read his stuff on knowledge, possible worlds, what if inferences. I remember Lacan praising him in respect to necessity and contingency account. In Munich I met Pertti Lindfors who was a colleague of Hintikka's in fifties. My Finish friends Siitonen, Seppo Sajama and many others owe him, not least in pursuing their careers in an independent manner. I just learned about Jaakko's passage.

Potrc o Lacanu, Austinu in o kontroverzi o dolocnih opisih

Iz pisma prof Potrca, ki osvetljuje njegovo metodologijo v doktoratu o kontroverzi o dolocnih opisih med Russellom in Strawsonom:


Glede tega se enkrat omenjam svoj clanek o Austinu v nekem starem Anthroposu, kii je kot vem bil prvi claneko performativih v slovenskem jeziku in sem ga napisal pod vplivom svojega lacanovskega studija v Parizu v tistem casu. Moja knjiga Zapis in govorica je namenjena kontroverzi o dolocnih opisih (ali jezik opisuje, oziroma ali je njegova prvobitna vloga v komunikacijski nameri). To temo sem zacel preucevati v Parizu pod vodstvom Jacquesa-Alaina Millerja, Lacanovega izdajatelja in slednika, ko sem bil na Ecole freudinenne vpisan na tretji stopnji. Temo mi je predlagal JA Miller na podlagi tega da jo je Lacan veckrat omenil na kljucnih mestih. Morda glavna zamisel je, da je beseda pomembna ter da ima svoje ucinke. Doktorat sem nato dokoncal v Ljubljani pod mentorstvom Franeta Jermana in sem ga predelanega objavil v knjigi Zapis in govorica. Moj glavni metodoloski pristop v tem delu je lacanovsko razlikovanje med mosko in zensko stranjo govora. Veselim se, ce boste to knjigo upostevali. Kljub vsemu pa je se vedno pomembno Austinovo delo.
