Reference, Realist, Antirealist, Truth, Reality, Non-reference

Abstract

Both realists and antirealists employ narrow and one-sided conceptions of reference. They take into account only ontological and epistemological dimensions of reference, neglecting the hermeneutical aspect. Consequently, both realists and antirealists do not succeed in explaining the phenomenon of truth as a non-reference within the philosophy of science. Reference should not only be perceived as denotation. It should also be considered a refiguration of reality.
