Gareth Evans on Incorrigibility - Dictionary of Arguments
Frank I 504ff
Incorrigibility/Evans: the thesis of Incorrigibility is idealistic, when it proceeds from the self-construction of the world by us. On the other hand the ability to identify ourselves as an objective person, is not to be exploited in a verificationist manner. >Self-identification, >Self-knowledge.
Immunity/Evans: Immunity against misidentification is a direct result of demonstrative identification - but it’s not about "identification". >First Person.
Error: to believe that immunity was not extended to physical features.
