Author Item Summary Meta data
I 85
Color/Quine: colors are more vague than rabbits. In order to determine whether someone is a bachelor you need additional information. The stimulus meaning is not decisive here. There is a rising line from stimulus meaning to additional information: colors - rabbit - bachelor. ((s)> Knowledge/Quine).
I 386
Disposition Terms/Quine: are assumptions from fine structure (microstructure). The color: "red" is actually also a disposition term. Irreducible general terms are only paraphrasable through subjunctive conditionals (counterfactual conditionals).
>Counterfactual Conditionals/Quine.
II 120 ff
Colors/Smart: color differences are rarely associated with significant physical differences. Aliens probably have concepts for length and electric charge, but not for color. To see the world correctly we must avoid colors and secondary qualities.
V 104
Color/Quine: is not a concept: because it is nothing definite like square and not a particular color. Instead there is the concept of a color word - i.e. "'Red' is a color word" (is language-specific). A bad way to phrase it is: "Red is a color". Because, for example, red and blue are as different as people whose phone number is a prime number. ((s) There is no designating property here. What are red and blue to have in common?) Ostension: Problem: Color is everywhere - therefore "There is color" is a bad observation sentence.
Color similarity: always refers to exact similarity.
Color Word/Color/General Term/Singular Term/Reference/Language Learning/Language Acquisition/Quine: E.g. you can call snow white and blood red without "white" and "red" being general terms. Snow is a diffuse part of the world which is part of a comprehensive diffuse part of the world, the White. Similar: Example a) smiling mom, b) mom in general. N.B.: against: E.g. the fact that Fido is a dog does not lead to it being part of that broader part of the world which consists of dogs, because that would also apply to his ear. - (>Gavagai) - accordingly for square.
