|Hintikka I 216
Verification/Comparison/Wittgenstein/Hintikka: the picture must be taken as a scale. - Verification is not an indication of the truth but the sense of the sentence. - (1929).
The comparison between language and the world must take place in the same world. - Language belongs to the physical world. - Also the symbolizing relations between sentences and facts belong to the physical system.
The scale must be in the same room as the measured thing.
Verification/Hintikka: a phenomenological sentence is verified directly by data - on the other hand: one sentence in a physical language: is a dazzling thing. - (Many objects are too large, too small, too far away) - Physical Language: public. - Phenomenological language: rather private.
Verification/Wittgenstein/Hintikka: early: meaning of an assertion = method of their possible verification. - Late: less important. - The truth of a confession is something other than its literal truth.
