Sunburn Example / menatal state / Davidson: Sunburn is indeed identified by reference to something outside of the skin, but it is located on the skin - just as mental states are still in the head (though not the meanings), although based on reference to components some of which are identified outside - mental state: does not go beyond the person - mental state: is not the same as the physical state - 102 there may not be a physical difference between a sunburn from the high montains and a sunburn - but there is some difference, since the cause is different.
