and what if people feel that communication “as whole” is not easy so they are not satisfied with arguments?
can you refer me to “philosophers” that generalized arguments and said that arguments is not necessarily something that ever been known to be maintained well in practice?
i’m talking about the lack of communication and what people are doing to make communication in this world better.
maybe people can refer me to philosophers who talk about the issue of “Limitations of definition”.
I’m not sure what you mean. WVO Quine and Donald Davidson have talked at some length about the translation problem—that you can’t translate precisely from one language to another—and that all meaning involves a sort of interpretation.
But if your concern is with communication per se, I’m not sure what good it would be for me to attempt to communicate to you my thoughts on it. If you are here in a public forum chatting with others, presumably it’s because you think there’s some use to communication, and that you can get something out of it.
As for arguments being maintained in practice: one thing that I have attempted to reinforce here on the forum is that we should not attempt to argue one thing in philosophical discussions and hold a different belief in our everyday practice. E.g., we should not be arguing that free will does not exist when we are in front of philosophers and then speak as though we did something freely in our everyday life. We should aim to use words the same way whether we are arguing about them philosophically or whether we are chatting about them with the neighbors. That way we don’t get into so many misunderstandings.
The only problems are with terms that are too vague; where it is an aid to communication to fix on a sort of standard definition for the purposes of argument. E.g., with terms like “God”, “spirituality”, etc., it may be helpful to be very precise about what we are talking about when arguing carefully. This may sometimes mean that we talk past the neighbors ... but so long as we are ourselves clear about what we mean by the terms, use them consistently, and can state clearly our definitions when asked, I don’t see that there are any deep problems in communication.
If, on the other hand, you are talking about communication in a political context, then the most important thing, it seems to me, is the willingness to compromise. But that isn’t an issue about words, so much as it is an issue of flexibility.
