First dogma / Quine / Rorty: "essentialism": the idea that one might, by determining the nature of the issue in question, between the thing that was talked about earlier, and distinguish what is said about it - which is not possible - second dogma: that a neutral observation language for verification / falsification was possible. (It is not).
