Books on Amazon:
Def idealism: truth does not match with the inner nature of an object, but coherence.
Ayer: by the "linguistic turn" he was given the possibility to present, as a logical positivist, a version of coherence theory of truth that was freed from metaphysics.
Coherence Theory / Rorty per Davidson: beliefs: can a) be seen from the outside view of the field researcher, causal interactions with the environment - b) from the inside, from the perspective of the natives, as rules of action.
The internal perspective is normative, in the space of reasons.
RortyVsPutnam: he somehow tries to think that together._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number. The corresponding books are indicated on the right hand side. ((s)…): Comment by the sender of the contribution.
