Cavell II St. Cavell Müssen wir meinen was wir sagen? aus Grewendorf/Meggle Linguistik und Phil. Frankfurt (Athenäum) 1974/1995

II 191
Knowledge/Situation/Cavell: it happens that we know everything about a situation but do not know "what is x?" This question then becomes very puzzling, precisely in the sense in which the whole of philosophy is puzzling.
We must remember (with Socrates) what we would normally say.
"What would we say here?" Is the same as "Which situation is present?"
