Richard Mervyn Hare on Representation - Dictionary of Arguments
Language/representation/Hare: the analogy with the e.g. dance points to our possibility of reasoning about our language usage.
This is a corrective against the orthodox representation theory, according to which "facts", "characteristics" and other dubious entities such as unreliable diplomats oscillate between language and world.
>Language behavior, >Use, >Speech acts, >Representation, >World/Thinking, >World, >Reality.
We do not need anything like that.
It is simply that people try to understand each other.
>Intersubjectivity, >Communication, >Community.
Anamnesis/Platon: anamnesis is not just remembering, but rather "recalling".
Hare: we know that we have understood something correctly without being able to cite reasons (knowledge/saying). The only test is to repeat it.
