[2.2.3] Observations about the Stoic, Conventionalist, Naturalist and Aristotelian Views on Language

In posts [2.2.2], [1.2.3] and [1.3.3] I proposed OntoUML diagrams for some aspects on the Stoic, Conventionalist, Naturalist and Aristotelian language models.
Here are some thoughts about the main differences and similitudes:

  • Both the Aristotelian and the Stoic models include the Mind in their model, using concepts like Mental State and Sayable; while the Conventionalist and Naturalists are not.
  • The Aristotelian model’s originality consists in the fact that there is no direct relation between the Word and the Object, (as it is in all the others). The relation among these two classes is realized by the Mind.
  • The Stoic model is more about propositions (represented by the Signifier), while the others about Words/Names.
