|Identification: A) Identification is the equivalence of two characterizations of an object in which new properties may be attributed to the object. B) Identification is the discovery that an object is a particular element from a set of objects. In this case, the number of initially assumed properties of the object may be reduced. See also specification, background, information._____________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. |
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.
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.
