Language learning/Quine: the success depends on whether the similarity standards match. - What do the episodes have in common?.
V 71
Approval/learning/Quine: instead of reward: is more general. - There are not enough situations for rewards, because not everything is pronounced. - Language learning: not only by linguistic statements, but also through non-verbal responses. - Even animals. - Approval: leads to voicing one's own sentences -> Gavagai: if you just wait until the parents say rabbit, you will not find out that everything that is called a rabbit is also referred to as an animal. - RI:question and answers game is essential here. - Approval must be obtained. - ((s) reward has to be confirmed otherwis).
