Evans / (s) conclusion without constants: from knowledge to truth - Despite having the same semantic structure there are different inferences with knowledge than with beliefs.
EMD II 200ff
Inferences / predicates / Evans / (s): Problem: inferences that are determined by predicates and verbs rather than by logical constants: problem: from "good king" not to infer "good and King" - from "knows that p" follows "p" but from "believes that p" it doesn’t - despite the same semantic structure - problem: rules do not apply to every predicate individually when we want a uniform meaning theory.
