ObjectiveUnderstanding modern rational perspectivism.
ContentWe study Nelson Goodman´s "Ways of Worldmaking" from 1978 and glance at other works relevant for his project like Wittgenstein´s "Tractatus" and Carnaps "Logischer Aufbau der Welt”. In the books by Goodman and Wittgenstein the relation between the natural sciences, philosophy and art is discussed. Goodman claims that both the sciences and the arts have the power to make worlds. We will try to find out, how plausible this suggestion is.
