|Danto I 259
World/Strawson/Danto: two main components: people and things. (particular). - to this, M-predicates correspond: E.g. "weighs 100 kg" - P-predicates: "thinks of fame" - Nothing is describable with P-predicates alone. - That would be different if there were really disembodied ghosts. - People are described by both predicate types.
Behaviorism: attempts to blur the distinction between P- and M-predicates.
Strawson I 35
World/Strawson: seems to be constructed of particulars and events. - Are also other images possible? - When someone mentions something outside of space and time, we believe that it does not exist.
World/StrawsonVsWittgenstein: Thesis: Only things and events are part of the world. - VsAustin: otherwise temptation to talk about situation as about things.
