Horwich I 463
Confirmation/Reference/Empiricism/Evidence/Davidson/Rorty: the lines of confirmation are not parallel to those of the reference. This is due to epistemic holism. - The knowledge of the former is the knowledge of the language, the one of the latter an empirical theory about the meaning (to mean) of the language. - This is also a history about the causal roles within the language behaviour in the interaction with the environment.
Confirmation/Wittgenstein/Davidson: not by "evidence". - No link with causality - otherwise "meanings" as entities.
