|Quine, Two Dogmas of Empricism:|
1st Dogma distinction analytic/synthetic - 2nd Dogma reductionism. The belief that each meaningful statement is equivalent to a logical construction of terms which refer to immediate experience. - Quine, W.V.O. (1951), "Two Dogmas of Empiricism," The Philosophical Review 60, 20–43. Reprinted in his 1953 From a Logical Point of View. Harvard University Press. See also analytic/synthetic, reduction, reductionism, conceptual schemes, holism. Later D. Davidson discussed a 3rd dogma (separation scheme/content)._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.
Third dogma: capping the last connection with empiricism - but: empiricism is not a theory of truth anyway but it is creating beliefs.
Third dogma: is preserved when empiricism has no theory of truth - not coherence, but of correspondence - creation of beliefs - scheme is part of the vernacular - not technical._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
