    • 2007 November 29, Manfred Kupffer, “An Unintentional Defense of the Indeterminacy of Meaning?”, Erkenntnis, volume 68, number 2, DOI:10.1007/s10670-007-9090-x: 
      In order to apply this result to Quine’s project of radical translation, we take X to be the set of all Native observation sentences and construe an observational sub-language that contains only observation sentences and all their syntactic parts such that X is cofinal in the set of expressions of the sub-language.

      As is common practice in psychology, where a term is used univocally (‘bald’, ‘consciousness’), it can be assumed (defeasibly) that individual differences in the associated conceptions of competent users of the term can be abstracted away from, and commonalities studied.

      The response proposed changes the sense in which it is not necessarily necessary that t originate from m to the epistemic sense of possibility captured by the indicative conditionality test: if w* turns out to be the actual world, then t essentially originates from m*.

      The secondary intension of S corresponds to the evaluation of S with respect to a world considered counterfactually, what the truth-value of S is at a world w* given that another world w is taken as the actual world.

      For example, a modal dualist who accepts the essentiality of origin would maintain that there are logically possible worlds in which one is born substantially earlier than they were actually born, but that there are no metaphysically possible worlds in which one is born substantially earlier than they were actually born.

      Option (ii) has two variants: (iia) conclude that the concepts conscious state and conscious creature fail to refer, adopting an eliminativist position; and (iib) claim that future, correct versions of the concepts will be vague.

      22 That should strike no one as odd: anyone who has pondered the traditional mind-body problem is familiar with conceiving consciousness in such a way that materialism, dualism, and idealism are all entertainable (albeit not with equal ease).

      As a consequence of these two points, the burden would seem to be on the proponent of (MM) to defend the position that the two modalities are in fact extensionally equivalent, and only notionally distinct.

      Malament’s suggestion that one might simply adopt the geometrized Newtonian field equation for empty space as the field equation for empty space in general relativity provides a striking example of how close the descriptive content of the two theories is in at least one precisely specifiable sense.

      Leitgeb writes: “Thus, according to Quine, while the stimulus meaning of an observation sentence can be identified with its meaning if the sentence is taken holophrastically, i. e. as a single-word expression ... , this is no longer possible if the observation sentence is not taken holophrastically , i. e. if it is taken analysed as being syntactically composed of meaningful parts” ( ibid . , p. 418; emphasis is mine).

      For example, in the logic of indexicals, the statement ‘I am here now’ uttered by a speaker is logically true and knowable a priori, however, the proposition expressed is metaphysically contingent.

      The objection begins with the idea that the conscious −a /unconscious boundary is not introspectable, and concludes that there is no reason to suppose that that boundary is not vague.

      Analogously, a kinematically shifted world is a possible world that is exactly like the actual world except for the fact that, for every object, i , if i ’s actual velocity is v i actual , its velocity in the possible world in the statically shifted world is v i shifted  =  v i actual  +  v (where the vector v is a constant for that world).

      The following paragraphs concern the theories of the nineteenth century logicists (Augustus De Morgan, Gorge Boole, William Stanley Jevons), the theory of John Maynard Keynes together with the criticism directed against him by Frank P. Ramsey, and the position of William Ernest Johnson, an author who had a great influence on his contemporaries.

      When discussing a case of symmetric overdetermination, David Lewis famously said that he had no clear intuitions about such cases, and consequently the case was one of “spoils to the victor” (1973, 194).

      If you want to assume the context principle both for a language L and a sub-language L ′ and avoid contradictions, this relativisation is vital, for it is not guaranteed that two expressions that are synonymous in L ′ will stay synonymous in L , even if the interpretation of the sentences of L ′ stays the same and L and L ′ satisfy the context principle.

      This supervenience claim pays heed to the idea that causation involves a concrete relation insofar as it suggests that we ought, ultimately, to be looking for instances of biff.

      Rather than characterize scientific progress in terms of increasing truthlikeness, the proposal is to start with the pragmatic view that inquiry involves the elimination error, then to use this understanding of inquiry to characterize a local notion of approximate truth in terms of descriptive nesting relations between our current best physical theories and subsequent theories.

      Note then, there is a connecting physical process between ‘the ball’s flying past Suzy’ and the event which is the truthmaker of the fact that the window smashed.

      As is common practice in psychology, where a term is used univocally (‘bald’, ‘consciousness’), it can be assumed (defeasibly) that individual differences in the associated conceptions of competent users of the term can be abstracted away from, and commonalities studied.
