Zero Point Reference: Conscious Philosophy new Matjaz Potrc book

Professor Matjaz Potrc just published his new August 2017 book entitled

Zero Point Reference: Conscious Philosophy

Book may be ordered at Amazon





Reference is a philosophical topics whose aim is to determine our relation to the objective world, to the items in this world. A look at the treatments of the problem of reference shows however that they all center at the zero point, the conscious perspective enabling our living in the world. Consciousness or phenomenology thus becomes important as the very basis of relation to objectivity. Agentive involvement of the referential agent goes along with it. Frege, Russell, Kripke and other authors are briefly reviewed, as is their impact upon analytic philosophy. Space of reasons is proposed as a counterbalance to the space of causes. Topics such as art, beautiful patterns, free will and first of all the characteristics of the experiential world are discussed, as is the Dasein's being-in-the-world. Reism is proposed as being compatible with austere realism monistic metaphysical project, with the basic distinction between the ontic, whatever one finds in the world, and between the ontology, the ultimate constitution of reality.
