I 19
Name/Identification/Necessary/Metaphysically possible /Epistemic/Kripke/Peacocke: E.g. assumed one could fix the reference of the name Bright by the fact that it intended to refer to the man who invented the wheel. Kripke: then still the statement is true: "it is possible that Bright has never invented the wheel".
I 188/189
Possible world/Description/Peacocke: there is no specific individual relation between the use of the expression "the F" and the thing which is F - ((s) otherwise certain aspects would be a priori) - - identity between worlds/Peacocke: even in quite similar worlds identity is a relation for itself - identity between relations to the perceiving subject in various worlds: pointless to claim.
