Radical Interpretation/RI/Translation/Field Linguist/Carnap: Key point: first it is discovered that certain objects are designated by a given word (extension), then the intension is discovered (what natives understand by it) - Extension before intension - order. 1) positive E.: attribute 2) negative E. (deny) 3) indefinite cases. - It is still possible to attribute different intensions to the thus extensionally fixed predicates! Because there can be different properties, for which the extension of the predicate has been determined. ((s) Ex (s) if all considered dogs are brown, it is not clear whether the color or the animals were singled out - Furthermore, "gloeb" could refer to four-footedness thus covering the entire extension. ChisholmVsCarnap: this does not take into account while any mistakes of the speaker or uncertainty.
