|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. |
Demonstratives/Identification/Evans/Peacocke: a) liberal theory/Peacocke: general capacity for localization - Evans: plus current localization - Peacocke: then it is not possible that a lost person can have thoughts about seen objects - cognitive Map/Memory images/Recognition/Peacocke: not causal but really demonstrative.
E.g. a lost person is thinking: here is a glass - Peacocke: that is still a statement about a place in the public space._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
