Evans: Language can be explained by modes of thought. - DummettVsEvans: vice versa! (also Frege)
Dummett I 112
"Philosophy of thought"/Evans/Peacocke: The "Philosophy of thought" does not give the language the same basic position. - It deals with the problem of what it means to have a thought, as well as with the structure of the thoughts and their components. What does it mean that a thought is about an object of this or that kind? What does it mean to capture a concept? What makes a concept a part of a thought?
DummettVsEvans: it is dangerous to reverse the priority of language against the thought (danger of psychologism when thoughts are subjective and not communicable).
Dum I 131
Communication/Understanding/Belief/DummettVsEvans: he is in danger of making understanding dependent on the belief that the intersubjectivity is based on the belief that the words of the other mean the same. But meaning does not depend on the individual consciousness, but objectively on the use.
Dum I 137
