An Aristotelian notion of size

Vieri Benci, Mauro Di Nasso, Marco Forti
2006 Annals of Pure and Applied Logic  
(Sizes are added by means of disjoint unions and multiplied by means of disjoint unions of equinumerous collections.)  ...  The naïve idea of "size" for collections seems to obey both Aristotle's Principle: "the whole is greater than its parts" and Cantor's Principle: "1-to-1 correspondences preserve size".  ...  Measuring sets of ordinals In [1] , an "Aristotelian" notion of size, called "numerosity", has been presented for countable "labelled" sets, starting from the following observation.  ...

Force, Motion, and Leibniz's Argument from Successiveness

Peter Myrdal
2021 Archiv für Geschichte der Philosophie  
Against such a reading, this essay contends that Leibniz's argument is instead best understood against the background of an Aristotelian view of the priority of real being over time.  ...  Appealing to considerations about the successiveness of motion, Leibniz attempts to show that the reality of motion requires force.  ...  For example, an oak's augmentative power is aimed at its full size, and when that size is reached the process of growth has come to an end; the process consists not in the full actuality of the power,  ...

Logical and Geometrical Distance in Polyhedral Aristotelian Diagrams in Knowledge Representation

Don't cry to be the first!Symmetric fair division exist [article]

Guillaume Chèze
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Furthermore, our study has led us to introduce a new notion: aristotelian fair division. This notion is an interpretation of Aristotle's principle: give equal shares to equal people.  ...  More precisely, we show how to get a symmetric and envy-free fair division algorithm from an envy-free division algorithm.  ...  Acknowledgement: The author thanks Erel Segal-Halevi for pointing to him an imprecision at the end of the algorithm SymProp in a previous version of this  ...

II—L. A. Paul: Categorical Priority and Categorical Collapse

L. A. Paul
2013 Supplementary volume - Aristotelian Society  
Assumptions about the priority of substance play a role in an argument for monism, are embedded in certain pluralist metaphysical treatments of laws of nature, and are central to discussions of substantivalism  ...  I explore some of the ways that assumptions about the nature of substance shape metaphysical debates about the structure of Reality.  ...  Williams, discussing the Aristotelian distinction between matter and form, one of the bases for the contemporary distinction between substance and property, describes an Aristotelian notion of prime matter  ...

Logical Geometries and Information in the Square of Oppositions

Hans Smessaert, Lorenz Demey
2014 Journal of Logic, Language and Information  
The Aristotelian square of oppositions is a well-known diagram in logic and linguistics. In recent years, several extensions of the square have been discovered.  ...  To do this, we distinguish between concrete Aristotelian diagrams (such as the square) and, on a more abstract level, the Aristotelian geometry (a set of logical relations).  ...  Acknowledgements Earlier versions of this paper were presented at Trends in Logic XI (Bochum, June 3-5 2012) and CLMPS 14 (Nancy, July 19-26 2011); we would like to thank the audiences of these talks for  ...

Vagueness: where degree-based approaches are useful, and where we can do without

Thomas Vetterlein
2012 Soft Computing - A Fusion of Foundations, Methodologies and Applications  
This coarse distinction contrasts with any finer one, in particular with the finest possible one, on which we specify sizes, beyond all limits of precision, by real numbers.  ...  In this case, it is necessary to combine reasoning on two levels of granularity in a single formalism. Following established practice, we choose an approach based on numerical degrees.  ...  s precise size is larger than the medium size of the people under consideration. In fact, the concept of a precise size does not correspond to any observation but is a mathematical notion.  ...
