O formach rozciągłosci
AbstractIn this article we present an idea that the extension as the ontological characteristics of an object should be examined by the topological concepts. We investigate the following formal moments of the extension in the context of topological notions: being in a space, being everywhere in between, being impenetrable, being dense, having a positive dimension. We claim that there are many types of extension. These types depend on the selection of the appropriate topological properties from the group of the following properties: connectedness, density, dimensionality, metrizability etc. We also give an example in which the res extensa has the type of bounded extension and the type of res cogitans is unbounded but unexpectedly these types are identical in terms of topology. That is they are homeomorphic. We argue that the property of being extended is not the property which differentiates things and thoughts.
