Causal theory / content / Stalnaker: punch line: the facts about my connection to Cicero do not belong to the content - the causal theory here is no theory that the speaker has about himself - but that a statement has a specific content, is a function of facts about how the world is - if the world had been different, the sentence about Cicero would have been about another person. ((s) > counterfactual conditional) - This does not commit us to a causal theory. - Then we can explain errors more easily.
