ОТ ФИНИТИЗМА В МАТЕМАТИКЕ К ФИНИТИЗМУ В ФИЗИКЕ

Translated title of the contribution: From finitism in mathematics to finitism in physics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The paper considers the interconnection between physics and metaphysics in the view of the elementary discrete mathematical simulation of value system. Metaphysics is treated as formal axiology. The two-valued algebra of formal axiology is used to explicate the evaluative aspect of physics. In this algebra, evaluation functions “movement”, “mover”, “time”, “homogeneity, “completeness”, “invariance”, “finiteness”, etc. as well as formal-axiological equivalence relation are defined precisely. The author generates lists of equations of formal-axiology algebra (= metaphysics) and notes that translations of some equations from a modeling language into a natural one agree with natural-language formulations of corresponding laws of physics.
