In this paper we propose a new paradigm concerning the schematic consideration of events in opposite to things. Starting from that paradigm, a new approach to a logic-based, language-critically motivated modeling-approach and modeling-language is derived. Further, some examples for logics which can be used in our approach are presented and exemplified. These logics can be used in a modular way. Finally we present an event-oriented architecture for application systems, which is applicable for the implementation of application systems designed by usage of the event-oriented approach presented in this paper.
