EMD II 47/48
Verificationism/Dummett: Contradictory term to McDowell's sense which is based on truth: the doctrine that mastery of language is acquired only through the acquisition of linguistic behavior. - Problem: Bivalence - if we accept it, then no behavior in undecidable sentences is possible - this is typical for the realism. - Solution/Dummett: justifiable assertion.

EMD II 62
Verificationism/McDowell: Problem: The meaning of the concepts of truth and falsehood cannot be acquired by means of evidence (how one acquires concepts usually). - However, evidence for the truth of sentences (so both together). - McDowellVs: because a non-empirical Tarski theory is included by the theory of sense, it does not follow that susceptibility for evidence is excluded, it is necessary for the attribution of beliefs.
