Thinking/Animal/Dennett: can dogs think? Problem: An idea must be composed of certain concepts.
Question of the description or formulation: E.g. bowl with meat, bucket with feed, "the delicious stuff that tastes so and so" ...
Translation: Could we, for example, just express the exact thought the dog thinks in German? If not, dogs can either not think at all or their thoughts cannot be expressed, and thus lie beyond our horizon.
II 157
Thinking/Speech/Dennett: All in all, these considerations suggest that our way of thinking had to wait for speech to develop.
Speech, in turn, had to wait for keeping of secrets to develop, and that in turn required the development of a certain complexity of the environment.
II 202
DennettVsRyle: notorious are his assertions that thinking could only take place in the public world and would not need to occur in a personal place.
II 190
Speech/Thinking/Dennett: no thinking without speech - (Thinking is not the same as consciousness (see above) E.g. dog has no concept of cat as an animal).
