Reductionism is any of several related philosophical ideas regarding the associations between phenomena which can be described in terms of other simpler or more fundamental phenomena.[1]

The Oxford Companion to Philosophy suggests that reductionism is "one of the most used and abused terms in the philosophical lexicon" and suggests a three part division:[2]

  1. Ontological reductionism: a belief that the whole of reality consists of a minimal number of parts.
  2. Methodological reductionism: the scientific attempt to provide explanation in terms of ever smaller entities.
  3. Theory reductionism: the suggestion that a newer theory does not replace or absorb an older one, but reduces it to more basic terms. Theory reduction itself is divisible into three parts: translation, derivation and explanation.[3]

Reductionism can be applied to any phenomenon, including objects, explanations, theories, and meanings.[3][4][5]

To control, regulate, adjust, or modulate (regulieren) Chaos: 

I have Data of these things and matter.

Research Quetions:

What are some differences?

What do Variations means?

These drawings gave me an idea for assemblage (different times in a space.), which drawings were not 'linkeness' (Abbild) of 'things' (Dinge) or 'matter' (Stoff), but rather I started to analyze 'things' (Dinge).

Today's scientific image (Graphic representation) such as by NASA is the analysis of 'things' (Dinge), which is not 'linkeness' (Abbild) of 'things' (Dinge).
