Thinking some more on Popper’s Three Worlds, here is a set of philosophical disciplines that seem to resonate with the themes of this blog.
- Phenomenology: the philosophical study or theory of phenomena as distinct from that of the nature of being
- Epistemology: the theory of knowledge, especially with regard to its methods, validity, and scope
- Ontology: the branch of metaphysics dealing with the nature of being
- Axiology: the philosophical study of the nature of value and valuation, and of the kinds of things that are valuable
I believe that one could also make a case for associations with phenomenology to the subjective, epistemology to the objective, ontology to the substantive, and axiology to the normative.
