Sellars I 16
Ayer: Proposal: that the speech of the sensory data is merely another language. Thus, no increase in importance in comaprison to our everyday speech. E.g. "the tomato facing is confronting S with an arched red sense-datum" is actually the same as "the tomato seems to be red and arched for S" (Sellars I 5!) SellarsVsAyer: a code does not add anything.
