Holism: Holism is the assumption that the elements or the subject domain of a theory are accessible only with simultaneous availability of all elements or objects of this domain. It is also assumed that a change to an element does not exclude changes to all other elements at least. The statement "everything is connected with everything" is however a wrong characterization of the holism, since it is logically erroneous.

Therefore the RI can not go step by step - Dummett: a class of sentences should contain the questionable word. DavdisonVsDummett: This class expands automatically to the entire language - DavidsonVsDummett: identify a corpus of sentences about situations.
