Vision-Centrality and the Reflexive-Identity of External Object

Frontiers of Philosophy in China 3 (1):55 - 66 (2008)
The correspondence of a sensory object to the category of a descriptive statement requires a reflexive-identity of the object, and such a reflexive-identity is primarily based on the cognition of spatiality. Spatiality is, however, constituted through visual perception. There are only two occasions on which definitive reflexive-identity is exemplified: the infinitesimal point and the infinite "One," and others are just human stipulations that meet pragmatic needs of rough identification of things at hand. However, if a spatial point is not different from any so-called "other" spatial point, to validate the reflexive identity of any spatial point implies a validation of the reflexive identity of all spatial points. Thus, as "one" and "many" here become absolutely unitary, the infinitely small and the infinitely immense are identical. /// 感觉对象如果要与描述的范畴结构对应,必须以对象的自返同一性为基点,这 种自返同一性原始地建基于对空间性的认知。然而,空间性是通过视觉感知才得到建 构的。确切的自返同一性只有在以下两种情形中才可以被简单为民义地建构:即,无 穷小的点与无穷大的 "太一"。对于在元穷大与无穷小之间的各种客体对象而言,其 自返同一性只是思想强加的,是按照实用目的进行概念化加工的结果。由于任一空间 点和任何所谓"其他"的空间点是无差别的,对任一空间点的同一性的确立也就是对 所有空间点的同一性的确立。结果是,既然 "一" 与 "多" 是绝对同一,无穷小与无 穷大也必然是绝对同一。.
