On opinion




Code:
Opinions -> Judgement or valoration that a person forms about something or someone
         -> Form or concept by which something or someone is thought of

An opinion is the internal image one has of something. It should include what you know and (mainly) everything else regarding one's mental relationship with the object's concept.

Code:
signified -> signifier
          -> referent

Signified = one's opinion
Referent  = the thing
Signifier = The sign by which one refers to the referent and that people understand

The signifier is exclusive to communication! In all other contexts, one should therefore refer only to the signified and the referent.

Code:
Personal meaning -> judgement, valoration
                 -> Only if
                       - Things can be known
                       - We assume that the thinker actually knows the things about which he has an opinion
                       - We assume that the thinker's knowledge is absolute and correct
                         -> Then: we can exclude knowledge from the definition of opinion.

                    Otherwise, opinion should be constituted as:
                    opinion: {
                        thing.knowledge,
                        thing.judgement,
                        thing.valoration
                    }
                    We separate judgement and valoration as string and number, description and scale.
