The realism of truth and the epistemological burden of existential judgements

  • language: Polish


Summary

Classical metaphysics, especially that of realistic origin, is maximalistic in character. Explanation through reasoning of the world along with its ontic structure leads to a description that, on the basis of the everyday, spontaneous contact with the surrounding universe, provides the foundations of its integral picture. This approach is based on the primary epistemological acts that are existential judgements. These judgements guarantee a direct comprehension of the world as it is, and they are necessary conditions of truth.

The article deals with the peculiar signless nature of existential judgements, with their ontic character, and with their role of mediator and guarantee of the truth of knowing.
