McGinn I 111
McGinn: Domestication theory of meaning:
of the third person: these theories shy away from consciousness and its contents while they settle the intended meaning in objective facts which concern the speaking subject. After that, causal, teleological or nomological relations to the environment are constitutive for the intended meaning. (Dretske, Millikan, Fodor).
