Linguistic realism and issues in quantum philosophy

Löfgren, Lars LU (1993) In Symposia on the foundations of modern physics : the Copenhagen interpretation and Wolfgang Pauli p.297-318
Abstract
Language has to be conceived wholistically. Fragmented views, provoked by

attempts at describing language, turn out essentially distortive on the general

phenomenon which language is, with species like genetic language, programming

language, formal language, observation language, inner cerebral language, external communication language. At the center of this wholism is a linguistic complementarity which obtains for every language. It reflects a linguistic realism where communicability plays a role which may be compared with that of experimentability for aphysical realism. Complementarity concepts of Bergson, Bohr, and Pauli all turn out reducible to the linguistic complementarity.

Language has to be conceived wholistically. Fragmented views, provoked by

attempts at describing language, turn out essentially distortive on the general

phenomenon which language is, with species like genetic language, programming

language, formal language, observation language, inner cerebral language, external communication language. At the center of this wholism is a linguistic complementarity which obtains for every language. It reflects a linguistic realism where communicability plays a role which may be compared with that of experimentability for aphysical realism. Complementarity concepts of Bergson, Bohr, and Pauli all turn out reducible to the linguistic complementarity.

Certain issues within the philosophy of quantum mechanics are viewed from the position of linguistic realism. A linguistic embedding of quantum mechanics is suggested. The Pauli-Bohr dialogue on the nondetachability of the observer is compared with the nondetachability of language, one of fourexposed views of the linguistic complementarity. Another implies nondescribability,

but conceivability, of realities. It is further developed in terms of a linguistic model for existential perceptions. It compares well with reality

conceptions of Bergson, Pauli, and Laurikainen. (Less)
