Wright I 66
Definiton Truth/Peirce: that what is justified on an ideal border of recognition when all empirical information is obtained.
PutnamVsPeirce: one cannot simply know when one has all the information. Wright dito.
Horwich I 448
Truth/Pragmatism/Rorty: Peirce: ideal final stage. - JamesVsPeirce: neglects the mind. - "True of" is no analyzable relation - (at least not between inhomogeneous entities). - Rorty: thus James omitts correspondence. - Dewey: completes the way: only the try to interpose "language" or "ghost", can let intentionality appear interesting.
