Author Item Summary Meta data
IV 1
Def anatomical/Fodor/Lepore: is a property exactly in the case where, if anything hat it, then at least a second thing must have this property - ((s) but not all things, so unlike holism) - E.g. twin ((s) but not male twin) - Def atomistic: properties that are not anatomical - E.g. "... ate the last one...".
IV 13
Holism/Fodor/Lepore: E.g. assuming anatomical prop would also be holistic - then it could turn out that, e.g., no language would have an expression for "the pen of my aunt" if it did not also have expressions that correspond to the following expressions, e.g. "Two is a prime".
IV 134
E.g. Belief/Shmelief/Faith/Shfaith/Fodor/Lepore: shmeliefs: like beliefs but without charity being analytic for them, then the majority could be wrong, but beliefs must usually be true.
IV 140
Projectivism/Fodor/LeporeVs: 1) must assert that there are no beliefs on the Twin Earth - 2) cannot explain the element of interpretation of intentional attribution.
IV 148
Interpretation Theory/Fodor/Lepore: Thesis that there are no intentional states - Dennett pro? Fodor/LeporeVsDennett: if intentionality does not exist, interpretation cannot attribute any properties to it- "if there are no beliefs and wishes, there can be nothing for what they are selected.
IV 197
State space semantics/Churchland/Fodor/LeporeVsChurchland: The technical apparatus does not help if you do not understand the everyday concepts - E.g. "marriageable" is not explained by a dimension of marriageability.
