Definition Of:

rule

Philosophy DictionaryKant Dictionary
[L:13] The Logic begins with the sentence, "everything in nature, in the inanimate as well as the inanimate world, happens according to rules, although we do not always know these rules". He defines nature as rule-governed appearances--"all nature actually is nothing but a nexus of appearances according to rules"--and speaks also of the exercise of our own power according to rules, and of our becoming conscious of these rules through philosophy. He speaks of rules of synthesis and rules of the understanding, and thinks it is particularly important to discover the necessary rules of the understanding "without which no use of the understanding would not take place". He defines logic as "the science of the necessary laws of the understanding and reason in general, or--which is the same-of the mere form of thinking".
Philosophy DictionaryDictionary of Philosophy of Mind
A theoretical device for the explanation of behavioral regularities and/or cognitive states. Rules are generally, but not always, characterized in terms of causally-operative mental representations . See computation , symbolicism , connectionism .
