Cognitive equivalence: replacement of a sentence by another one should not interfere with the empirical content - QuineVs: not sure because a representative function is possible - instead: synonymy of stimuly - (but this only for occasion sentences) - afterwards cognitive synonymy is possible also for terms - but not for timeless sentences.

X 21ff
Sentence equivalence/QuineVs: in everyday language there is no basic order (like pixels in a photo) - you cannot assign the sensual proof clearly to individual sentences ((s) formulations) - Quine: Because of the network of theories - (underdetermination of empiricism).
