Relevance/Identification/Cross-World Identity/Possible Worlds/Hintikka: Question: What are the relevant worlds that need to be considered in the perception-like identification?
Solution: all worlds need to be considered that are compatible with what the subject perceives.
Knowledge/belief/Hintikka: etc. corresponding: the relevant worlds are always those that are compatible with the knowledge, the beliefs, etc. of the subject.
For example, compatible with the distribution of objects in the field of vision.
(S) VsHintikka: 1. these worlds cannot possibly all be relevant.
2. The distribution of the objects can be different, without the stimuli being different: E.g. swapped eggs, exchanged seating etc._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
