Example text

From the actual constitution of the individual or species. Psychologism is a form of specific relativism since it tries to argue that the meaning of truth and logical laws may change or evolve with the change or evolution of the actual constitution of the human mind. " 30 c. The Prejudices of Psychologism Husserl tries to dispose of three prejudices of psychologicians to make his own anti-psychologistic position easier to accept. The first one is not really a prejudice, but the clinging to a confusion which he had cleared up earlier in the book.

Any proposition, for instance, which asserts a contradiction, though it were on a subject wholly removed from the sphere of our experience, is to us unbelievable. 3 Likewise the modus ponens rule which asserts that if the proposition "A" is true and the proposition "A--+B" is true then the proposition "B" is true would be interpreted in the following way: Whenever the proposition "A" is judged to be true and the proposition "A--+B" is judged to be true, then the proposition "B" will be judged to be true.

But if (7) is true then there might be many millions of twos just as there are many millions of minds which have the idea "two". This however is absurd. But since (5) is not absurd it follows that (6) is absurd. It must be noted that Frege relies here heavily on the notion that ideas are private mental events and that no two minds can have the same idea. He writes: If the number two were an idea, then it would have straight away to be private to me only. Another man's idea is, ex vi termini, another idea.
