Danto I 24
Moral/criterion/Kant: there are no criteria for morally right action - because you could always act correctly from blind chance - nothing guarantees in the behavior itself, that it is morally.

Horwich I 77
Truth criterion/KantVsCriterion: the search for it is absurd - like to milk a bily goat and to keep a strainer underneath. - The agreement with the subject is given and presupposed here. - Ramsey: there can be no truth criterion, because each object is distinguishable from any other object and thus has something that is true in it but not in any other object - therefore there can be no guarantee of the truth which is independent from the referred object.
