Tautology as non fundamental

Scroll for English

Wer “Business is business” als kalt berechnend sarkastisch empfindet, der kann es nicht als tautologisch empfinden. Denn Kälte, Berechnung, Sarkasmus sind Informationen aber Tautologien sind informationsleer.

Es gibt auch andere Beispiele von diesen nicht tautologischen Tautologien. Schönere. “A kiss is a kiss”; “A sigh is a sigh”.

The fundamental things apply.

Enough with scrolling

If you think that “Business is business” is cold and utilitarian and sarcastic you may spend one thought on the topic that it is, on the face of it, a tautology. But this can’t be, as tautologies are devoid of information. And utilities or sarcasm or cold are pieces of information.

There are many nontautological tautologies. Unlike “Business is business” beautiful ones. “A kiss is a kiss”; “A sigh is a sigh”.

The fundamental things apply.
