Philosophy and Culture 33 (6):45-65 (2006)

People's knowledge is a flexible contact center that is material presented directly or through the heart showing the operation of flexible images, and concepts. Concept of shape諸on the inside, while the outside is shaped諸language, so language, thought, and the existence of a relationship. A word title refers to the statement of the word B is thinking activities. That being the case, the need for expression, language, title has different level. The first is named for the objects to the word to express the basic nature of things, this is the special of the normalization, such as the metaphysics of the title, is certainly reasonable intellectual common ground of all things. Statement of management wisdom of things, the concept must be there, and gradually add the factors, this time from the title and sub-activity is special. This article aims to explore the logical relationship between the title and the title of metaphysics, which describes the title and metaphysics. Description There are three directions: First, the concept of origin from the title and description of its meaning; Second, the title and the relationship between scientific knowledge; Third, the relationship between the title and metaphysics. Human knowledge begins with sense experience. The direct contact of the sense organ brings about mental activities which result in the formation of images or concepts. What is formed within the mind is expressed without the mind through language; hence there is a connection between, thought , language and being. Predication is the mental activity that uses one term to express the other. In predication, the mind has first to integrate all the different elements and make them into one concept. In predication however, activity is carried out in the opposite direction where the mind resolves the whole into parts. Consequently, there are different levels of predication. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relation between logical predication and metaphysical predication, and reflect on the relation between metaphysics and predication. It is divided into three parts: the origin of the concept of predication and its meaning; the relation between predication and scientific knowledge; the relation between predication and metaphysics
