Fixing the contents created in the act of knowing

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
The human subject in as much as he knows transforms the sensitive and concrete (the thing perceived) into abstract (an image of the thing perceived), the abstract into an idea (imaginative representation of the thing abstracted), and ideas into contents of conscience (meanings). The last step in the creation of meanings, something being executed in the speech act, consists in fixing the construct mentally created thus making it objectified meanings in the conscience of speakers. The interchange amongst the different steps in the creation of meaning manifests lógos, the state lived by speakers in their interior when speaking, created and developed in words and because of words.
