Meaning/meaning theory: A. truth conditional semantics (Davidson) and - B. Verification theories of meaning. (Dummett, Putnam, Habermas). - All Verification theories use the verifiability of the assumed relationship - a) strongest version: a sentence understands who knows that it is true - b) weaker: understanding bound to knowledge of the verification procedures. (Dummett, Vienna Circle) - or acceptability conditions: Putnam and Habermas) - according to them someone understands a sentence, who knows how to verify or when it is accepted as true.
