Verification/Peirce: Confirmation relations are ipso facto semantical. - QuineVs: Evidence is not semantic. - Otherwise it would be a priori.
Verification/verification conditions/Quine/Fodor/Lepore: Quine-Duhem thesis: verification conditions are a posteriori. - Verification: it is a question of scientific discovery what confirms what - (not a matter of meaning).
Problem: if then the confirmation relations are revisable and meaning depends on verification, then statements cannot have their meanings essentially. - Then statements cannot be formulas + semantic assessment._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
