Heywood To Participate
At French Institute

Philosopher
Interpreted
By Lecturer
Whether or not there is one.
specific "naturally right" name for
any object, is the question that
G. E. L. Owen, chairman of the
Greek philosophy department of
Oxford University discussed yes-
terday.
Speaking on "Plato on Names
and Truth," Prof. Owen traced the
idea of a natural language as Plato
developed it in four of his later
dialogues.
"The theory of natural language
says that there is a naturally right
name for everything, and that the
rightness of the name depends on
its relationship to the thing it
names," Owen said. According to
the theory, words are "shorthand
for a description" of an-object,
and so the best word is the, one
that has the most immediate con-
nection with the descriptive phrase,
having the most letters and sounds
in common with it.
Reduce to 'Atom Words'
"Furthermore, all words can be
finally reduced to "atom words"
which are, physical imitations of
the objects they stand for," he re-
marked.
According to this, Plato first
thought of a sentence as a name,
which cannot be analyzed into
parts. He thought of the sentence
as a unit, and ignored the com-
plexity of the individual"linguistic
units.""
Incorrect Sentence Part
But there was still the problem
of an incorrect part of a sentence,
which does not make every part of
the sentence wrong, Prof. Owen
said.
Because of this problem and
others Plato discarded his "atom
words," which were imitations of
the real word, and substituted ele-
ments of language which can be
named but not accounted for.
These elements are "ubiquitous,"
and are understood by "reflection,"
not by their similarity to anything
in the real world.
When these elements are com-
bined with each other, they form
complex or "super names," Prof.
Owen remarked. When Plato had
explored the idea of "naturally"
right names, based on the imita-
tion of the physical world, he
rejected it.

ISLANDS ARISE-Workmen stop to survey their work of making
the State Street loop a permanent Ann Arbor institution. This
cement traffic island at the corner of Williams and State Streets
is one of a series "that makes the thoroughfare a one-way street
between Liberty {and Williams.

State Street Loop Solves Traffic Probl(

Loop Called- Successful
"Our opinion for some time has
been that the loop is very success-
fuil," Ann Arbor Police Chief C. M.
Enkemann said this week.
It handles traffic with much
less congestion and we have had
no complaints from motorists, he
explained.
Putting in the loop was the
least expensive way of doing the
job, Chief Enkemann said, and it
was the only way.
Widening State St. 'Impossble'
Removing on-street parking in
a business area where it is at such
a premium.Is only a last resort.
Widening State St. in this area is
impossible, he said.
Although he has received no
official report of business condi-
tions inthe loop area, Enkemann
said that, in his opinion, the loop
should tend to increase business.
