Interpretive meaning theory/interpreted/Davidson: 1. You must know what is determined and relativized to expressions by an extensional finite Tarskian truth theory - 2. conscience empirical conditions are satisfied (usually principle of charity) - 3. We would know that 1. and 2. exist - only counterfactual conditional: "what would be the case ..." - otherwise not realistic for any actual speaker - problem: no Tarskian theory for natural languages - strange feature/Schiffer: that there then has to be a content-determining property, which is not known by any speaker - solution: it is in the non-propositional or subdoxastic knowledge - it is in any case "represented internally" - Schiffer: this is not a mistake of Davidson.
