The though hit me today that if all the different brances of science were to use the language of numbers and formulas in their own exclusive way, then mathematics would be as controvertial as theology.
In metaphysics there is no common norm for the terms used to create the abstract landscape of thought. "The soul" and "god" mean different things depending on which branch or school of metaphysics you consult. Often the different definitons or understandings contradict eachother.
If we had the same problem in science... If for instance PI had different properties in geometry and algebra, the two schools of mathematics could easily contradict eachother.
And finally I am getting to the question I wanted to ask:
Could the differences between our metaphysical realities, and the conflicts these differences cause, be resolved by a unifying language that has clear definitions that all can understand?
Kant tried to do something like this in his Prolegomena (or start something like this). He wanted Metaphysics to officially become a science after 2400 years of being regarded solely as a part of philosophy. It failed though. Poor Metaphysics haha.
I am sure we could set up a language, that is, we could construct one that is already interpreted. This languuage would have to be geared towards Metaphysical issues. There is a problem though in this: would anyone be able to come to a consensus on this language (a group of people that is).
Also we have to consider if there is already not a better language out there for metaphysics instead of having to create a new one. Or maybe a multitude of languages (math, logic, etc.).
